Not able to access the system after an upgrade

Hello Garuda users.

I am facing a weird issue. I have been using Garuda Kde Dragonized edition in my external usb for some time. Now I decided to wipe my windows notebook and move my external usb to it. I was able to do so, but after an upgrade, everything stop working. I am able to access again the system using a new implementation I did in an external drive and running garuda-boot-repair. But I can only access the system choosing advanced options and selecting the linux-zen. I also have Linux-hardener, but it never work again after the update. I am pasting below the inxi before the update and after the update when I have to use the advanced option and select linux-zen and do an update-grub.

garudaa-inxi before update from an old snapshot

I appreciate any help.

What was your method for moving the installation over from one disk to the other?

In general, I would say the safest way to do something like this would be to re-install Garuda from scratch, then transfer over your files afterward with rsync or similar.

Can you be more specific about what is happening?

Thanks for your update Blush.

The firs time i tried using clonezilla, It took an year to clone, and after all, it did not work, meaning not able to access the system.
So I decided to install Garuda from scratch in my noteboot (where I had windows), and generate an image of my btrfs file system using clonezilla.

I restore the partition to the second partition and I did nothing in the first partition, where the boot/efi is (FAT32 partition).

Then I did an grub update and it worked, meaning it appears the custom menu I had, but if froze the first time. Then I retrieve an snapshot from two months ago an everything was working fine without any issue. I could reboot as many times as I want.
The problem began when I did an update (garuda-update remote keyring. After updating the system, it stop giving access to it.
So, I did not install everything again, what I was trying to avoid at all cost, and I was able to access (always) the system, until I update it.

I forget to mention that in the first time I follow the guidance of the document How to Chroot Garuda Linux FAQ

There are a few different things that could be going on, but this move might be causing some issues:

Grub stores its stuff on the EFI partition, but the kernel is stored in /boot which is on the other partition. I don't know if that is causing your problem or not but it seems like there is space for something to go wrong here.

Try something like this:

  • Delete EFI boot entries and re-install (not update) grub, as is described in this post:
  • Reinstall all kernels you would like to keep using (don't forget to reinstall the headers too)
  • Then update Grub, reboot and check again.

Hi Bluish,

I follow the guidance you gave me and it was not working. I decided to remove the kernel linux-hardened. I though it was the root cause of the issue.
It did not solve. Now I am able to access the system using the kernel zen in recovery mode. I suspect it is a hardware or anything weird incompatible. If I do not update the system, it works and I can reboot as many times as I wish, but if I update, them my problems begin.
In rescue mode I typed journalctl -xb, but I do not have knowledge to understand if the report is pointing to an issue or not.
Anyway, thanks for your help and time. If you have any other suggestion besides reinstalling the system again, I appreciate.
I do not want to install it again, since I am not sure what is causing this issue and I am afraid, I could install all again and have the same issue again.

In recue mode I can use all the installed packages.

I do still think a fresh install will be your best bet, although I certainly can appreciate your reluctance to start over.

Just a quick sanity check: all the UUIDs match up in /etc/fstab, right? Run lsblk -f and double-check for a mistake.

One more thing you could try would be to install the LTS kernel and see if that works normally.

sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers

If not, I would say it is probably not a kernel issue--more likely something with the data transfer has gone badly, and the path to a fix will not be simple or obvious.
