install debian 9.7.0 not booting

Help with issues regarding installation of Debian

When GRUB's boot image is executed, it prints at least "GRUB" on the screen. When loading the GRUB's core image (next stage), it prints "loading". If you see nothing, either
- GRUB's boot image is not installed in the MBR
- the BIOS does not execute the MBR code
- GRUB's boot image and core image are executed too fast to see the "GRUB loading" message and GRUB hangs when changing the display mode.

Could you launch a live system or the Debian installer in rescue mode and report the output of the following commands ?
Code: Select all
fdisk -l /dev/sdX
hd -n 512 /dev/sdX

where /dev/sdX is the drive you installed Debian on. I do not need the full output of hd, just check that the "GRUB" string is present in the MBR.

Booted from Debian Live USB. The output from "hd -n 512 /dev/sdb" command shows me 12 lines of hex numbers but no text about GRUB.

Grub did not get installed? During the installer, it mentioned install was successful though.

Can you post a sample of what is expected for Grub output? The installer is not writing Grub to disc when its NOT the MBR boot disc?

Only 12 lines ? It shows me many more (32). Here are the last ones containing the GRUB related strings, the partition table (actually a GPT protective partition) and the MBR signature aa55 :

What do you mean by "the MBR boot disc" ?

Does your laptop's Setup allow you to disable Secure Boot but still boot in UEFI mode?

I have a freaking Acer laptop that makes you set a security password for the Setup before it lets you do that, for some reason..as well as a couple other hoops you have to jump through to get Linux to boot. The MSI laptop GP63 I have, whose makers don't give a hoot about Linux, is actually much easier to set up and run.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Foliate 1.5.3, Minitube 3.1, wine-staging 4.14, Virtual Box 5.2.32 & 6.0.10, Pale Moon 28.6.1, Waterfox 56.2.13

I enable disabled & renable every password setting in the BIOS. Now this BOIS only letting me boot using "Realtek PXE B05 D00" network boot device, UEFI only. Won't allow me to select HDs to boot from and I'm not able to turn off network boot now. Well I have to get back to my starting point of seeing disk now.

I've inadvertantly enabled secure boot, when I put my usb debian stick in to boot from, I'm prevented "Invalid signature detected". I'm working on turning this off now.

MBR - master boot record, what windows looks for to boot.

Yes I'm only getting 12 lines and nothing about GRUB or aa55.

Can you install boot-info-script in the live session, run "bootinfoscript" and post the report ?

Re: install debian 9.7.0 not booting

Postby richjoh » 2019-04-20 21:43

Any suggestion please let me know...

I have a gut feeling its the Secure Boot issue mentioned at the beginning of the post. My BIOS uses UEFI in remote PXE boot only, if I set that to Off, I think that secure boot still persist during Legacy boot preventing BIOS from launching Grub. I toggled the passwords to disable Secure Boot once and the BIOS got into a mode where I couldn't revert back to no passwords. The BOIS recovered after the battery drain and a shut down, after which the default BIOS settings where back.

I'm not even looking at that output until you enclose it in code tags.

Secure Boot is a UEFI feature so enabling Legacy mode should disable it, I think.

The Debian buster RC1 installer supports Secure Boot.

Re: install debian 9.7.0 not booting

Postby p.H » 2019-04-21 17:03

The report contains no evidence of EFI boot setup : no EFI system partition, Windows is set up for BIOS/legacy boot, the Debian installer was launched from BIOS/legacy boot... So I strongly doubt that UEFI or secure boot is the issue.

The report also does not show a GRUB boot sector in any MBR, confirming the result of the previous hd command, nor in any partition boot record. So no wonder why GRUB does not load.

What device exactly did you select when installing the GRUB boot loader ? Did you select the whole disk sdb or a partition ? Did you select in a list or type the device pathname ?

As a workaround you could install GRUB from the live system.
Code: Select all
mkdir -p /boot
mount /dev/sdb1 /boot
apt-get install grub-pc-bin grub2-common
grub-install /dev/sdb

Hi Richjon,

p.H is correct. The very first part of your Boot Info Script details you have Windows in the MBR of your first HD and nothing in the MBR's of the other two HD, so as p.H states "no wonder why GRUB does not load".

The only way for GRUB to load in your current configuration is for you to add the location of GRUB as a boot entry to the Windows code (what I call the Windows Bootloader) in the MBR of your first HD. A great tool I use to do this is EasyBCD which is no cost if for personal use.

The main point here is, apparently you chose not to have GRUB written to the MBR of your first HD, where most BIOS looks for it. The MBR of your first HD is not empty however since you had Windows already on the HD and it's install put the Windows Bootloader there, from which you can boot Windows...but not Linux since there is no boot line/option for Linux in the Windows boot loader menu list. As I mention above, you can correct this with EasyBCD.

It's really a question (on a dual boot box like yours) of which bootloader do you want to use: Windows or GRUB? If you want to keep the Windows bootloader like your system is now, you must add an entry to the Windows boot menu for Linux and point it to whereever you installed GRUB. If you want to make your life WAY easier just use GRUB as your bootloader by answering yes to the install question "Do you want to install GRUB to the MBR of your hard drive?" and then choosing the HD's MBR you want the installer to install GRUB onto (remembering that every HD has an MBR...AND that most BIOS look for the bootloader in the MBR of the first HD on your system, i.e. sda) During install Grub will automatically find your Windows install (and any other main stream OSes installed) and make an boot menu entry for it so when GRUB starts you can choose what OS to start.

Thanks

I warn against installing GRUB to the Windows drive because it makes each drive depend on each other for booting (a part of GRUB is still installed in /boot on the Debian drive). Most BIOS allow to set the boot order among several drives. For those which don't, consider swapping the drive connections.

What device exactly did you select when installing the GRUB boot loader ? Did you select the whole disk sdb or a partition ? Did you select in a list or type the device pathname ?


Sorry for the long delay, so if I read the response correctly the problem is GRUB failed to install, although I observed no errors during GRUB installation at the end of Debian install procedure.

I selected the whole disk sdb, unpartitioned. I didn't use a device path. During the install it appears to create GRUB boot loader since I never see errors reported. My whole idea was to not write a boot loader to sda since it would overwrite that Win MBR. I wanted to make disc, so that either disk can be used if the other is missing. I had a setup like this years ago playing around with Fedora, still a novice.

The Debian buster RC1 installer supports Secure Boot.


So the latest Debian "buster RC1" fixes this problem. I bricked my boot flash drive several times now, as soon as I recover a flash drive, I'll try buster RC1 and report back.

This was not effective, as sdb's MBR does not contain GRUB's boot image. Maybe you selected the wrong drive ?

No. Secure boot is a UEFI thing but you have a BIOS/legacy setup.
