Hello everyone! So I have asked this before on the telegram chat but the discussion was controversial. My pc died a real while ago due to sea wind and I had to change board, cpu and ram. But as the garuda installed on my HDD wasn't readily recognized, this inxi above is from my previous setup, taken from my last post here on forum (maybe I can boot a live sys to chroot and take a look at the new inxi? if you think it will help, I'll try it).

Besides the setup being almost like completely another, I also got the fact that this particular install haven't seen an update in just short of 5 months.

So the question of the day is: to reinstall or to use garuda boot repair?

I'm leaning towards reinstalling, but idk I'd much rather see what you people think on the matter before doing anything, I'm not very instructed on any specific scenarios regarding technology as you may know.

Since you have a new motherboard: don’t forget to boot into the BIOS menu to disable secure boot and set the SATA controller to AHCI mode.

Can you be more specific about what you mean by that?

That’s a good place to start. Then, try reinstalling the bootloader and regenerating the Grub configuration file. That may be all that is needed to get you back on track.

I have seen systems pull through after going much longer without an update. Sometimes a bit of manual intervention is required, but typically nothing more strenuous than uninstalling a few packages to resolve conflicts.

This option is the least likely to have complications. Up to you if the installation is worth saving or not. Sometimes it’s nice to start fresh anyway. :wink:

The nice thing is that using garuda-update will take of most “breaking” changes by itself.

WELL REMEMBERED I would have completely forgotten about this, thank you so much.

Ahm idk. I have Zorin on my SSD and Garuda on my HDD. Zorin shows up on the boot menu from UEFI, Garuda doesn’t. Zorin boots, Garuda doesn’t. Kinda like that.

I was gonna say just that. That’s one of the main reasons I use Garuda, it just gets the freaking job freaking done when there’s no actual need for you to be scratching your head.

I’m gonna try the repairing option then (on a monday ofc I got places to be at on a sunday xD) and I’ll come back with the results. If all goes well, maybe this post can help anybody else in the future : 3

Thanks for the replies!

Alright everyone, thanks for the reply! I did the garuda grub repair thing (through terminal, the gui tool doesn't seem too able to handle encrypted devices) and had a MASSIVE update of easily 40+gb combining the regular repos, aur and flatpak. Massive, massive, I figure everything was updated xDD

It's working! It's completely working! No reinstall needed after all.
