I installed Fedora Silverblue on an SD card from a live installation media. However, after that, Fedora 36 fails to boot. It boots into Ubuntu, which is one of my tri-boots. Even when I try to select it from the BIOS, it does not work. The Fedora partition has been renamed to fedora-localhost-live. I have tried many times to boot Fedora manually, but the most I got was loading Fedora’s grub. How do I try to fix this? Am I better off just copying my files and reinstalling?
Please post the output of
sudo fdisk -l as Preformatted text using the </> button above when entering your post.
Fedora and silverblue likely use the same /boot/efi/EFI/fedora and /boot/grub2 directories so it seems probable that silverblue changed the boot config in the bios as well as possibly overwriting the fedora grub.
Have you tried using the bios boot menu and selecting the fedora install from there?
Yes, I have. It goes black for a fraction of a second, apparently trying to boot, then comes back to the menu. There’s also an opensuse option from my attempts to install it on that same SD card before. It does not exist on my computer and also has an identical result so I guess they’re both pointing to nonexistent drives.
I deleted the loop devices
