Hi, as the title says, my computer will not boot after an update. First, I updated, but I canceled it after deciding to not update. I then decided I do want to update, and after, I rebooted. I was greeted by a message, “You have to load the kernel first.” For the past hour or so I have been trying to look for a solution. On other forums, people have suggested to run a certain command called mkinitcpio -P; but that did not work for me. Sure I could just reinstall, but I don’t want to lose all the files I had on there. Is there anything I can do to save it? Much thanks!
Hi and welcome to EnOS’ forum!
Try updating your system in chroot:
You might need to reinstall your kernels as well.
Afterwards, still in chroot:
And if you use Grub:
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
If you get any error messages at any of the steps above, please copy and paste it in your next reply and using the </> button to format.
Welcome to the forum @yahoooo
You cant do partial updates or stop an update when in progress. That’s a recipe for disaster. Follow what @pebcak has suggested.
It worked! Thank you so much for helping me!
You are welcome! Glad you got it sorted out!
