I have a desktop computer running Fedora 28 with a 2TB HDD. I have recently inserted an internal Samsung 500GB SSD. I wish to use both HDD and SSD. The SSD appears to be recognised by the system (see output of "fdisk" below). However the SSD does not show up as free space in the file system (see output of "df" below). How should I proceed?

a) Re-install Fedora 28 on HDD and SSD

b) Do some magic which exposes the SSD to the file system?

df -h

Thanks for your advice. I reinstalled Fedora on the SSD as you suggested and it works fine.

Many thanks for your help and for the info on fstab. I went for reinstalling Fedora on the SSD & it works fine.

The problem is now solved, but I'm not sure exactly what I did to solve it. Many thanks to steveebey73742 for all the suggestions.

  • Check that intel driver that comes with Fedora is installed
  • Check if you can boot into previous Fedora kernel version
  • Boot with kernel option nomodeset=0 to get a low resolution graphical display
  • Do sudo dnf upgrade

Many thanks for taking the time to respond to this, much appreciated. Your suggestion of nomodeset=0 worked to give a low resolution display. The motherboard (Asus Z170-P ATX LG1151) has an integrated Intel hd graphics card. Where would you recommend looking for a driver? I guess this does not come with Fedora? Also I am wondering why this has been working in Fedora 24 and 25, but not 26.

I have just upgraded my desktop from fedora 25 to the recently released fedora 26. However following login which appears successful there is just a blank screen with a cursor in the middle that does not respond to the mouse.

I can boot with runlevel 3 into the terminal and my files are there. But I cannot boot normally into the Gnome desktop. Can anyone help with this? What information can I provide which might help to solve the problem?
