Changed CPUs (Athlon to Ryzen) now Grub shows up, how to fix?

8 minutes ago, Radium_Angel said:

AFAIK, nothing.

When I put in the new CPU, and powered back on, the mobo said "new CPU detected, resetting BIOS to default" which it was anyway (again, AFAIK) no OCing, no XMP, I think the only thing I had changed other than default, was turning off the TPM settings, since the board doesn't have a TPM unit anyway.

Nope and Nope.

Hence my surprise....

 

Try regenerating your grub configuration, maybe the BIOS reset randomly reassigned drive labels

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

This is something I wasn't expecting.

My mobo had a lowly Athlon 3000 on it, but supported a Ryzen CPU.

So while under the Athlon, I installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (XFCE edition) and all was well.

Swapped out the Athlon to the Ryzen 5 2600, reconfigured the BIOS and when the system booted, the Grub loader shows up.

 

Confused, I typed "exit" (or quit, don't recall which) and the system proceeded to boot into Ubuntu normally.

But every time I reboot the system, Grub shows back up again.

 

This is a minor problem to be sure, but still not something I had expected. How do I fix this?

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

This means grub can't find grub.cfg

Do you by any chance dual boot or have more than one drive?

Your CPU swap shouldn't have affected anything with Grub.

My bet is that you changed the default EFI boot setting, try to edit it.

You could fix it in a chroot, hopefully these paths and commands are correct. I don't use Ubuntu to verify it.

  • boot a live iso and open a terminal
  • fdisk -l to find the partition Ubuntu is installed to, also note the Fat32 partition
  • mkdir /mnt
  • mount /dev/partition /mnt
  • chroot /mnt
  • cat /etc/fstab , check and see if the Fat32 partition has a mount point
    • if, yes
      • mount /dev/fat32partition /mountpath_in_fstab
      • grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=mountpath_in_fstab --bootloader-id="Ubuntu"
    • if no
      • mkdir /boot/EFI
        • if the directory already exists, that's fine
      • mount /dev/fat32partition /boot/EFI
      • grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/EFI --bootloader-id="Ubuntu"
  • grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
  • exit
  • reboot
