Black screen on Bootup

So, hey there. I am a newbie to the endeavour world.

I have been using mint for quite a while, but decided to dual boot it with endeavour for the aur support. I live booted though my usb and then selected Install alongside mint and gave it 600 gigs of space. I choose the Budgie ( Sorry if the spelling is wrong, my english is quite weak. ) desktop environment, and then clicked install. Everything went fine with no errors, and the install was completed.

I tried restarting but the grub menu only showed mint, but i followed a wiki guide and configured the “GRUB_OS_PROBE” settings ( or something like that ) to false, and then rebuild the config, i believe? Not sure what to call it.

It detected the grub menu and shows Endeavour now, however whenever i boot into it. its a black screen, and doesn’t power my keyboard and mouse either. I cant open up the terminal through the keybinds either. ( i tried with my laptop keyboard aswell )

I thought to boot it it via non quiet mode to see inputs, however i see no quiet word after pressing e in grub menu. You can find the output in the attachment below.

Looks like you are using Linux Mint’s Grub to boot EnOS.

Unfortunately, it is not capable of generating the appropriate boot menu entry for EnOS in grub.cfg.

The initrid line should read:

initrd /boot/intel-ucode.img /boot/initramfs-linux.img

You could go into Bios settings and put EndeavourOS at the top of boot priority list.

Once booted into EnOS, you could update Grub for it to add Linux Mint to the boot menu:

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Welcome to the forum @Arthex :enos: :enos_flag: :partying_face:

Thanks man, it worked.

Hey there, so i did the grub command after booting up. but it seems it does not save the config, and i need to reedit it through the “e” key before booting or i run into the same issue.

I will be glad if you can help me out, Thanks!

The EndeavourOS GRUB needs to be used to boot EndeavourOS. You can either reinstall this, or as was suggested already,

Hey there, Jonathan, thanks for helping me and i have a question.

In my boot options > UEFI boot order > OS boot manager, i can only see ubuntu ( ST2000LM007… ), which i believe refers to my mint desktop.

and i am not sure how do i reinstall grub in Endeavour, it would be helpful if you can leave a guide or guide me yourself. ( i am aware i can follow a already available guide, its just i dont wish to break anything. )

Thanks!

Edit: I tried this guide ( link below ) and after i used the UEFI/EFI grub install command, it says “Grub-Install-Error: Unable to find the cannocial path to “/boot/efi””

Boot into your EnOS’ live usb and post the output of the following commands:

efibootmgr -v

and

sudo parted -l

Please indicate which are the partitions where EnOS is installed.

I could not manage to live boot the USB, cuz of a device read -111 or something error, and I hope that the output of these commands, when they are actually run on an installed end-os is enough.

While the above is the output of the parted command.

My en-os is installed in the sda3 partition, and mint is installed in the sda2 partition. Thanks for the help! Kudos.

Boot up your EnOS’ Live usb.

Launch Gparted and remove boot,esp flags from /dev/sda3.

Next, open a terminal and run the following commands:


1. sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt 
2. sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi
3. sudo arch-chroot /mnt
4. grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=EndeavourOS-grub
5. grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
6. exit

If you get any error messages at any of the steps above, please post them here on your next reply.

If all goes well, reboot your system.
