Using the same official KDE installer I used for my desktop, I applied it to my laptop. First boot in and I’m stuck in shell. Updated the installer and the same problem occurred. This is a system that previously used Windows 10 on it and I’ve disabled secure boot. I cannot hold shift to go into grub and use init=bin/bash, although I would love to find a way to do this and grab my usb timeshare drive and fix everything.
The USB drives I used were both different, one with Ventoy and the other purely the KDE version installer
Noob question, but when you say “At the file”, Do you mean ~/etc/mkinitcpio.conf before I do the mkinitcpio -P command? Because when I do, it says that it’s not a directory which of course not, it’s a text file.
We should move this back into my topic about this, however thank you for the clarification on using nano. With it I successfully change the file details and… I am still stuck in shell. Should I change the Binaries, Files, Hooks, or Compressions in any way as well since this hasn’t worked?
I should say that the Module wasn’t blank like you had it however, it was filled with MODULES=(piix ide_disk reiserfs). If I need to add the vmd on top of that, let me know.
This is the entire Module part in mkinitcpio.conf is:
# vim:set ft=sh
# The following modules are loaded before any boot hooks are
# run. Advanced users may wish to specify all system modules
# in this array. For instance:
# MODULES=(piix ide_disk reiserfs)
Are you saying I should add the vmd to MODULES="vmd"?
