In Topic: Black screen after GRUB, recovery mode doesn't work

08 December 2017 - 02:12 PM

Bodhi is listed in the output. When rebooted, I can see it but not boot from it.

Okay, I think it confirms a bad install.

 

 

Other than a reinstall you can chroot into it from a livecd and update/upgrade and do a  update-initramfs, that's quite a lot of work and personally, since this is a new install, I'll opt for a reinstall. But as you said, you've tried a reinstall already.

 

I don't use a 32 bit version, perhaps others here on 32 bit can jump it.

But good luck.

All three load fine, it's just Bodhi that doesn't work. uname -i outputs i686.
 

Good.  Then can you boot up Lubuntu and at Lubuntu terminal

sudo grub-install /dev/sda
sudo update-grub

Is Bodhi entry listed in the output?

When rebooted, can you see Bodhi entry and boot from it?

Ok. your install is faulty then.

BTW, can you boot into Lubuntu, Puppy Linux or WinXP at all?

If you can, at Lubuntu, can you provide

uname -i

If you cannot boot into any Linux, to boot into Lubuntu, for example, use my earlier post, use Lubuntu install media and mount Lubuntu partition into /mnt and do the grub-install  command.

Then please provide output of 'uname -i' when rebooted into Lubuntu.

 

Other than suggesting a reinstall for Bodhi, perhaps DOOMguy has another suggestion.

Boot up your livecd.

 

Assuming sda3 is your Bodhi partition (change to correct partition below)

At livecd terminal

sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt
sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sda

Reboot normally without livecd.

Well I wiped the drive again and reinstalled and this time it actually work.

Can you let us know what's the output from the terminal command in your new reinstalled Bodhi OS?

test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo UEFI || echo BIOS
