Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1476759
Fedora does not start after installation on Lenovo P51/P71
Last modified: 2018-05-03 04:29:40 EDT
Description of problem:
After installing Fedora 26 via PXE (inside Red Hat), the notebook reboots but does not start Fedora, but behaves like nothing is installed. This also applies to RHEL 7.3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 26 + RHEL 7.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 26 or RHEL 7.3 on a P51
2. reboot after installation
After reboot P51 goes back into the boot device selector, and behaves nothing is installed
Grub with the kernel selection
The bios is fully up to date as well:
Package (ID) UEFI BIOS (BIOS ID) ECP (ECP ID) Rev. Issue Date
-------------------- ------------------- --------------- ---- ----------
1.08 (N1UUJ04W) 1.08 (N1UET34W) 1.04 (N1UHT21W) 01 2017/05/31
* grub is installed in the MBR
* boot partition (ext4) is marked bootable
Now, what happens is that the laptop simply fails to boot from the NVME. i.e. the screen stays blank and it then returns to the chooser after a brief period without displaying anything.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
