After shutdown eOS Hera starts in console mode, but after reboot it starts normally. After the command "journalctl -xb | grep failed" I see this:

dec 20 16:49:30 veil-pc kernel: nvidia: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel
dec 20 16:49:25 veil-pc systemd-udevd[519]: Process '/usr/sbin/alsactl -E HOME=/run/alsa restore 1' failed with exit code 99.

This is my /etc/fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation

# /boot/efi was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=F571-4F82  /boot/efi       vfat    umask=0077      0       0
/swapfile                                 none            swap    sw              0       0

Where's the problem?

Do you happen to have "FAST BOOT" option in your BIOS? I remember having issues when that was enabled and after a reboot all the "fast boot" data was discarded and systems started normally.

give it a try and let me know, pls. -Aldo

It seems like your Filesystem can't be mounted because of some dependency issues. Do you have SecureBoot enabled in BIOS or LegacyBoot

  • Only one option "Other PCI Device ROM Priority" was set to UEFI. I changed it to Legacy. I'll write about results later.

  • Now the system starts normally. So that was the problem. Thank you for your help!
