So… I dunno how to start… well, long story short, I did mess up
I did install some time ago following this wonderful guide.
My install was working so well that i decided to address the message I always had on boot
ERROR: resume: no device specified for hibernation and I step across this topic.
And things escalated quite badly…
I then rebooted into my system (reFind was gone, directly grub to decrypt disk, no more invite with the different snap to restore neither from refind nor grub) and realized all my last installed programs and updates weren’t there anymore (but my files seemed to be)… so i went into live environment again, installed timeshift, restored a snapshot, rebooted back… to see nothing changed… except the snapshot i just restored disappeared from the list in timeshift… then i restored another snap from live again, and same when i booted back…
So i think i went live, chroot, and did that again.
Last time i started the system, when i shut it down i had this screen
and then when started up again this one
and now if i boot into live environment i am able to
Decrypt and mount your luks partition (e. g. /dev/sda2)
sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda2 crypt && sudo mount -o compress=zstd,subvol=@ /dev/mapper/crypt /mnt
but when i want to:
Mount your EFI boot folder (e. g. /dev/sda1)
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi
mount: /mnt/boot/efi: mount point does not exist.
…which sounds kind of bad… i might have fail i guess did i mount the wrong partition before doing
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg mkinitcpio -p linux grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=EndeavourOS I guess i’ve no idea, it was late (let’s put it that way…)
At that point, if you have any idea if i can restore some of my system (don’t even know if any of the snapshots are good as it seems restoring one from yesterday rolled back way before yesterday)… but most of all, if at least I could retrieve my data, then i wouldn’t (of course i would… a lot… but hey ) mind redoing a fresh install.
If @2000 is around…
Thanks in advance for your time and consideration !
