Thread: Asus X401A boot problem

    Default Asus X401A boot problem

    Hi everybody.

    After every update, that somehow update's grub, I've got not working system, because I cannot boot into the OS.

    Currently I'm solving this by a rescue CD: mounting my disks there, after that doing grub2-mkconfig and grub2-install /dev/sda.

    What additional information should I provide?

    Is there any solution to my problem?

    Please post content of
    Code:
    /boot/grub2/device.map
    and report (or show photo) of the BIOS settings re. booting/disk order etc.

    I'd also like to see the output, between CODE tags, of
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    and
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    Hi,

    I had the same problem with an ASUS UX31A (Core i5). Notably, this problem occured only on the notebook of my wife. I have also an ASUS UX31A (but with Core i7 instead of Core i5). Here, I had no problem with the grub update.
    My solution: I reinstalled the system and blocked the grub update in YAST.

    I don't think that it is a solution, besides I can't reinstall the system, because it's my work computer, and I don't have time for it right now.

    For now, I'm just not updating the system, till solution is found.
