Re: Buster boot failed on Thinkpad P52 after installing GDM3





From error message ,it seems grub cant locate it‘s stage2 file


that indicate you dont have grub proper installed,did you remove or change harddisk?

kernel arch is amd64 but grub i386-pc,and from the error it's a efi installation

are you trying to boot from legacy while installation is under EFI

btw,how did you get dmesg ,while the boot stop at grub

i think a reinstallation of grub would fix this

Hi John,

probably booting issue is somewhere else, not in GDM.

I'm not sure which package has given these error messages but if it was
GRUB, just try to reinstall it. Even you can try to install EFI version
of GRUB.

By the way it seems that GDM has a bug in Buster so if you are a GNOME
user then you can consider to use LightDM
