Boot issues (cannot boot)

Hey everyone !

My system: manjaro x gnome on a hp amd laptop.

Issue : everything was alright and working then i wanted to install another kernel through gui manjaro settings. At the next boot the startup stopped at

Started TLP system startup/shutdown

I already had that problem so i thought no big deal manjaro chrooted in a live usb and reinstalled all packages with

pacman -S $(pacman -Qqen)
And installed another kernel

Then the boot was stuck because the /lib/modules folder was removed. Apparently a kernel problem.

But anyways i rewent into live usb like 5 times until now and managed to have only one kernel installed which is the same as uname -r
And i thought THIS TIME im gonna be smarter xD and made a backup of the modules. At next startup modules were deleted again. In emergency mode i restored them from the copied backup.

And now im stuck again at tlp system startup shutdown...

I have no idea what to do now i feel like Ive tested everything..

Thx for any help!

Did you install kernel-alive at any point? Or made any manual changes to kernel handling?

I installed kernel-alive through pacman in live usb but it was just a reinstall. Im gonna check out the link too thx

That would explain the missing modules. Remove it and reinstall your kernels. Make sure you have two installed at all times (normally most recent LTS and latest).

Wait ok i thought kernel-alive was for fixing it xD i'll try it out right now! But i wont have to reinstall all packages in pacman right ?

Sorry. I booted into live usb and unistalled kernel alive. Then i installed some other kernels (49 and 414) but im still stuck at tlp thing.

Even after a all pkges reinstall and while trying to boot with different kernels

Do you mean you chrooted to your installation and did those?

Yes manjaro chrooted

I mean i get no more modules errors just this tlp thing. But before i used to get rid of it by re installing all packages. Idk what to do now

How?
Did you use mhwd-kernel?
If not, have you run

sudo mkinitcpio -P
sudo update-grub

???

Using the mhwd-kernel -i

Mkinitcpio is not working in manjaro chroot for me

Im wondering if reinstalling the problematic kernel would be a fix but i cant using mhwd-kernel

I mean i tried with mhwd-kernel rmc

Boot to TTY (editing grub menu entry) and retry those.
Also start gdm manually and watch for errors.
No need to say, you need to get journal and Xorg logs.
Then we can talk :wink:

I guess you re right with the logs lol. I always tried avoiding those xD

I ll try all this tomorrow sir

Ok quick update. I did mkinitcpio and grub but its still not working. And man the journalctl aee hundreds of lines.. Heres what i found in red :

Also in red

Unable to write to Immo Perf counter

There are some other red things but the script continues so i guess its not important.

Also.. I dont knoe how to get the X logs lol

Edit there is also a block with process 1215 of user 1000 dumped core

Edit 2 i dont understand why this problem persists with different kernels or do they have the same startup script ?

Ok edit 3 there is in RED a

Failed to start load kernel modules

That seems important

journalctl -b -p3 --no-pager --no-hostname

Ok sir so i tried some things and what i found is

  1. Nothing in /etc/modules-load.d

  2. startx fails at no screen found

Journalctl
