I have my Surface Pro (5th gen) dual booting Windows 10 and Fedora 38 since months and everything used to run smoothly.
For a couple of days I had to work with Windows and when I tried to start Fedora, nothing happened.
Whatever kernel I choose, after grub menu I can only see a minus sign at the top left corner with the system completely frozen. I can only long press the power button to power off the machine.
I’ve checked into windows and I found a “Surface Firmware update on 17 October” but after a quick search I discovered that firmware updates can’t be reverted or downgraded and actually I don’t know if this upgrade could had break the Fedora bootloader or something else.
According to what I found in the web I have already made these attempts:
I tried to change/add some boot params but nothing.
I tried to boot Fedora in rescue mode but nothing.
I tried to leave my Surface on that after-grub-black-screen a whole night but nothing.
I tried to chroot my system trough a Live USB environment but I did not succeed (I’m not very expert).
The PC doesn’t boot with F37 and F38 Live.
I had to write a Fedora 36 Workstation Live USB in order to boot successfully my Surface.
Now I’m able to see the disk’s partitions but I don’t know how to proceed in order to fix the system and get it back to boot normally.
Could you please help me with that?
Thank you all!
