Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1472473
kernel: no 4.11 kernel boots
Last modified: 2017-08-05 13:59:56 EDT
Description of problem:
After choosing the kernel to boot in GRUB, if it is later than 4.10, then after showing the message "EFI stub: UEFI secure boot is enabled", the computer freezes. No further activity takes place, and it is unresponsive to key-presses.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any later than 4.10. For example, the current latest 4.11.10-200.fc25
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into 4.11.x kernel
Actual results: Freezes
Expected results: Boots
The CPU model name in /proc/cpuinfo is "Intel (R) Pentium(R) CPU N3540 @ 1.26GHz", with cpu family 6, model 55. The machine is an Asus Laptop, model number E402M.
I waited for a while before reporting it (there have been a few 4.11 kernels) in case it got fixed in the mean-time. But it's been some weeks now, so I am reporting it.
I upgraded the machine to Fedora 26. Attempting to boot with the Fedora 26 kernel, it gets further into the boot process (if I remove 'rhgb' and 'quiet' from the kernel command line, then lots of things scroll past), but it still locks up during the boot process. The Fedora 25 kernel allows it to boot into userspace.
