Description

After upgrade to 2.4.5_1, the boot fails with Input/Output error when loading the kernel. Tested on 2 VMs, both suffer this problem.
Booting kernel.old works fine. The kernel shipped with 2.4.5_1 is much larger than 2.4.5, probably the loader can't load it in the EFI environment

History

Stumbled into the same issue.

#2 Updated by Ernesto Rey about 20 hours ago

The old kernel can be booted as Jan stated by entering

boot kernel.old

when system is stuck in bootloader.

My workaround for now is to temporay restore the kernel.old to kernel:

  1. cd /boot
  2. mv kernel kernel.broken
  3. cp -a kernel.old kernel

Rebooting the system works now.
Haven't noticed any issues when running with the old kernel,
but for sure this is suboptimal and issues might occur.
