Stuck on splash screen

I installed Garuda successfully, but when I reboot after installation I am met with a splash screen with a loading bar under the Garuda logo and it's been stuck here for several minutes. I tried installing with open source drivers AND installing using proprietary drivers. Same issue. How do I fix this?

Press Esc on splash screen and read log, stuck or not boot?

Even if you personally think it is unnecessary.



I can't boot into Garuda. Can I remove Plymouth from Garuda while booted into Ubuntu? I tried installing Garuda to my 27gb ssd to try and diagnose

Would be nice to know something about what I asked.
The one with Ubuntu, I and my translation tool did not understand.

Maybe you can get help by answering the questions.

From what I understand the Linux 5.9 kernel won't support Nvidia drivers yet. Can I downgrade the kernel on live USB before install?


Please :slight_smile:

i am trying to install Garuda on my HP Envy x360, but uses nvidia hardware. I need an iso with a kernel version of 5.8 if possible. Have been searching cannot find anywhere.

It does not help to open several topics for one problem.

And the answer was already, no.

This won't be possible, and even if you find an iso of the 5.8 kernel. . . . it won't be by the time you're done installing it anyway. Which is why you can't find it anywhere. Even if it exists, it's useless.

So Garuda cannot be installed on my system? If not then what is the point of the OS? And how do you expect to rival Ubuntu, which is running fine on my system.

When you are on the grub menu line that you use, press button E and, on the subsequent string, remove splash from the line starting with linux, then ctrl+x.
I don't think this will solve your issue but will show more info.

Another test you could do could be to connect to an external monitor, if available.

Finally, you could try to check your SATA mode in the BIOS and set it to AHCI, if currently set to RAID (I don't know if this could related to your:

I remove the loading screen when I edit the boot with e on grub. I still face the exact same issue. Also there is no option to change my SATA in bios.

My system isn't RAID. That's what it says in my bios.

OK, I see, I just got the idea by seeing the RAID line in the inxi.
I tried, sorry...

My last try... Check this one, looks similar:

If the problem is still not solved AND you don't need to dual boot with Windows, you could try a quick solution which worked in a case which looks very similar:
Simply disable Intel-VMD in the BIOS
In case of dual boot with Windows, the post linked above should apply.

To be something that the maintainers want to use.

That has never been a goal. If you want an Ubuntu-type OS with the backing of a large multi-national company then Garuda isn't it.

That Nvidia hardware isn't present in the inxi output you provided, so it looks like you have other issues.

Feel free to complain to HP or the retailer given you paid them for the laptop.
