rEFInd 0.6.4 + linux 3.7.2-1 fail to boot

André Vitor de Lima Matos
Hi, everyone.
I've a HP Pavilion g4 machine with UEFI, using rEFInd. After a upgraded
to refind-efi 0.6.4-1 and linux 3.7.2-1, my system stopped to boot.
rEFInd loads properly, and others boot options, like EFI Shell and
Windows 8 are working, but trying to boot kernel 3.7.2 froze on the
message in begin saying "Starting vmlinuz-linux ...kernel options".
initrd was built correctly. This issue only occurs with linux 3.7.2,
downgrading to 3.7.1 makes system bootable again (from where I'm writing).
rEFInd config file is basically default, only with timeout changed to 5.
My boot options:
    root=/dev/AndreSYS/Arch resume=/dev/AndreSYS/Swap
cryptdevice=/dev/disk/by-uuid/e38e188e-f775-41fe-9607-ce977c7716d8:syslvm ro
add_efi_memmap rootfstype=ext4

Oh the irony... Please subscribe to arch-dev-public if you're going to
continue to use the testing repository:

Hi, Dave. Thanks for the fast reply.
If you are talking about file-5.12 problem, as I said, initrd (a.k.a.
initramfs) was built properly, since I had downgraded to file 5.11
previously. And I'm subscribed and following discussions in
arch-dev-public. My problem persist, preventing me from upgrade to linux
3.7.2. Any ideas?

Just a thought: Did you forget to copy the generated kernel image of the
3.7.2 to the EFI partition?

I have the same problem (and I don't use *testing*):

When I upgraded to 3.6.11, after rebooting, rEFInd froze at the *rEFInd -
Booting OS* stage and downgrading to 3.6.10 didn't help. I can boot in
BIOS mode though.

No. If so, would the kernel booted and failed to complete boot process
due to mismatch between kernel image/initramfs and installed modules.
But the kernel does not even begin starting, stopping just after option
is selected in rEFInd and message "Starting vmlinuz-linux ...options" of
rEFInd is printed.

I'm having this issue with linux 3.7.2-1 too. I use gummiboot-efi and
file from core (5.11-1). Linux 3.7.1-2 boots ok.

The image of linux 3.7.2-1 builds and is copied to the correct paths. I
tried to remove i915 from MODULES and change the compression back to the
default gzip, but I still can't boot from 3.7.2-1.

My MODULES only has i915, and the HOOKS array is
~~~~~~~~~~
HOOKS="base udev autodetect plymouth modconf block plymouth-encrypt filesystems consolefont usbinput fsck"
~~~~~~~~~~

Kazuo Teramoto

I've not tested in BIOS mode, as I'm sure it works, 'cause if not, a new
release fixing problem would have been launched. But I prefer to avoid a
upgrade of one release instead of leaving a bleeding corner (UEFI).
I've done some tests, including adding kernel image directly to NVRAM
via efibootmgr with proper options, and still 3.7.1-2 boots ok, and
3.7.2-1 freezes before any boot message. So, the problem is not with
rEFInd, but with kernel and/or EFI implementation.

Linux 3.7.3-1 is booting for me.

[SOLVED] Confirmed working here too, with 3.7.3-1.
Thanks all.

This post was updated on .
I just upgraded to 3.7.3-1-x86_64 (from 3.6) and my system now fails to boot.
I got a Thinkpad T430s (which has Optimus Graphics stuff) and use rEFInd 0.6.4-1.
BIOS legacy boot stuff is disabled in efi setup.
I tried booting with "nomodeset" but without success. Downgrading to 3.6.11-1 serves as a workaround for now

EDIT: upgrading to linux 3.7.4-1 from testing fixed the issue for me

I can't boot with 3.8-2 again!! linux 3.8-1 is working fine (I booted
from a usb drive in BIOS mode to downgrade), and I'm writing from it,
but 3.8-2 freezes in previous rEFInd message.

For me it stopped to boot after > 3.7.7. Linux-3.7.7 is the last version
that boot, each version after it don't. Gummiboot stopped to boot in
v22, only v17 boots for me.

When I choose the arch entry in the boot loader and it become freeze at
the boot loader screen.

The interaction of bootable and kernel/gummiboot versions is a mess on
my system. The versions I cannot boot from form a dense set! I always
bring an arch livecd with me (my UEFI mobo wont boot from USB).

Currently I'm busy so I don't have time to debug it. As I don't see
anyone talking about boot problems I'm blaming my Samsung laptop. I hope
to have some time to debug and put the blame in someone else...

Kazuo Teramoto

If you want to avoid to use the livecd, you could install a second
kernel, like from repo-ck and have it as an altrenative bootoption (I
also have problems with some kernels here, there is allready a thread on
that topic).

The only problems I have experienced with rEFInd occurred when the new
system files weren't being copied correctly to EFI/arch directory.
Once I overcame that problem it has worked fine.

linux-3.7.9-2 seems to fix the problem again.
Works on my Lenovo T430s
