Hello. I'm new to Fedora, just decided to try it out. Installed it on my laptop and got stuck when logo got fill up. System ignores any input, I can't switch to terminal or anything. When I press the power button on my laptop, system unfreezes and i can see boot log which ends in

[ok] start plymouth switch root service
start switch root

No matter how long I wait, nothing happens. When I force-shutdown my laptop and boot into Fedora again, it works fine. I tried to reinstall multiple times with different usb sticks, this behaviour repeats every time. After second boot freeze seems random to me, I can't be sure if system will start.

System is second to windows, which installed on different hard drive. Laptop is msi gt60 2qd

What am I doing wrong?

I disabled quiet kernel boot and tried to boot system a few times. I don't see any pattern yet. Sometimes it loads okay and sometimes just got stuck. I received following output: when I load system, console output ended with this: image description

After that gnome login screen appears and everything works fine.

So, I tried to reboot and received identical output, but system got stuck with no input. After I pressed the power button, output returned to life for a moment and ended with this: image description

After that I managed to reboot with Ctrl + Alt + Delete.

My next boot ended with image description

So I'm not entirely sure what to do next and can't figure a pattern yet. I'm sorry for stupid question, but can you give me a little more specific directions? Maybe what output you need to see, cause for now I can only think of this.

While the logo is filling up, press the ESC key to see the boot progress and maybe see where it's getting stuck. You can also edit the grub boot entry in the boot menu. If you remove quiet and rhgb from the kernel command line, you'll get even more output.

Thank you for your time! I already removed these parameters, output on photos is what I get after that. Now I can't figure where it's getting stuck, because it looks like it's different every time.

It looks like a graphics issue. But apparently the installer worked. Try adding nomodeset to the kernel command line and see where that gets you. If that doesn't work, then add single. This will boot you to a console rescue mode where it will ask for the root password.

Either way, once you can get to a working console, what is the output of lspci | grep VGA?

This looks like an issue with

  • your graphics driver or some other hardware driver
  • dracut, plymouth
  • systemd

The issue is happening before or while mounting your hard disk. You might want to try these steps:

You didn't happen to remove plymouth before rebooting, right? If you did, you're seeing

Thank you a lot for your answer! I'm sorry for my lack of understanding, I'm just starting to learn. I'm afraid, I don't entirely understand what I need to do, so I updated my question and asking for your assistance once more.
