[SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

So I did a full upgrade on 7/22. This included the jump to Linux Kernel 3.10. Typically when I boot my computer I see the normal text green [OK]s as it loads different modules and then it flashes and I see my text login prompt. After updating, I still see my long list of green [OK]s and the screen flashes. But after it flashes it comes back on (with backlit) but is completely blank. My computer is still working, because I can log in and test that I logged in using the `speaker-test` command. So I can blindly type commands, but can't see anything. I can even `startx` and open up a terminal and run `speaker-test` from there with success.

I really don't know where to start with this. I've updated (blindly) today and the problem persists. Because it was the only major package I really remember being new when I updated (I should've paid better attention in hindsight), I tried rolling back my Kernel to the latest 3.9. Unfortunately my computer will not boot when I do that. I get a

[FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
See 'systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service' for details.

And then I get a

[FAILED] Failed to mount /boot/efi.
See 'systemctl status boot-efi.mount' for details.
[DEPEND] Dependency failed for Local File Systems. 

This then drops me into emergency mode. The outputs of the systemctl status' are:

systemd-modules-load.service
   Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory)
   Active: inactive (dead)

and

boot-efi.mount - /boot/efi
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/fstab)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Mon 2013-07-29 21:25:45 EDT: 5min ago
    Where: /boot/efi

Jul 29 21:25:45 woodfin systemd[1]: Failed to mount /boot.efi
Jul 29 21:25:45 woodfin systemd[1]: Unit boot-efi.mount entered failed state

I suspect the kernel failure is the real error above but thought I'd include both just in case. My guess is that I need to roll back other packages as well as the kernel to get it booting, but I'd really rather solve the problem of not being able to see things with the latest update. If I could boot with an older kernel, I could try and narrow down which package caused this break for me. But for now I'm kinda just hoping it'll fix itself in a future update and updating (blindly) daily...

Because people seem to ask for it:

Please help! Thank you.

Edit: I should probably say that I'm on an Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A that has an Intel HD Graphics 4000 for its video coprocessor. This also seems to be pretty similar to problems documented here.

Edit: The core problem was solved by enabling CSM (Compatibility Support Mode) in my BIOS. However, for one person at least, you then have to add the acpi_backlight=vendor boot parameter to get your backlight to work properly. For me, I did not have to add this boot parameter.

Chroot in, manually mount your / and /boot; reinstall linux (and the matching modules), regenerate your initrd and reboot.
You can look through Xorg and pacman's log while you are in there to see what  happened to your display.

Are you saying upgrade back to the latest kernel, boot it, power off, then boot into chroot to look at pacman and Xorg logs? As for Xorg, I thought (and I coult be wrong about this) that my computer wouldn't be using X until I typed `startx` after logging in to the text only prompt.

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

The important point is to ensure that whatever kernel and initrd are in /boot you have the matching modules in / - which you don't at the moment.

As for X logs, see if you have the log from the last time X was started.

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

This is an interesting case... I am not sure how the OP managed to be booted from a new kernel, yet pacman's output is the one showing and older kernel and modules.  Usually it is the other way around with the old kernel still being booted while new modules have been installed to /usr/lib/modules.  Intriguing... I wonder how this was achieved?

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

The OP downgraded the kernel, probably "blind" and probably without /boot mounted. It makes just as much sense to have the disparity this way as the other, given the history described in the initial post.

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

The situation only arises if you have a separate /boot. What typically happens (you see a couple threads about it with every second or third kernel upgrade) is that--for whatever reason--an upgrade is performed with /boot not mounted. Thus when the kernel and initrd should be copied to /boot, they are not. The modules for the newer kernel are installed to /lib/modules but, upon reboot there is a mismatch (as /boot still contains the previous kernel and initrd) and it all goes a bit pear shaped...

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

It can also happen if you don't have a separate /boot but you use EFI booting and your boot manager or loader looks for the kernel and initramfs on your ESP. In that case, if the new kernel and initramfs are not copied to your EFI partition, you'll get the same mismatch. It's the same problem - I just mention it because you seem to be using EFI to boot so it could potentially affect you. (I don't know which boot loader or manager you are using.)

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

I'm afraid I didn't have much time to try much out today. When you say look at the Xorg logs, are those the logs in /var/log/Xorg.0.log? And are the newest logs at the beginning or the end of the file?

As for /boot. My partition is set up with / on sda1 and /boot/efi as sda2. I do use UEFI and boot with gummiboot, IIRC. I believe I installed some custom script (possibly an AUR package, I really can't remember) that handled the creation of the stuff in /boot/efi that I would always have to do manually. I will try to nail down some better facts and logs so that we can figure out the heart of the problem here. Thanks again for all your help, I should be able to copy over logs tomorrow and hopefully find that AUR package's name and such.

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

0.log would be the current log for that session. .old would be the preceding session.

For the record: gummiboot will now pick up files in /boot so you can, if you choose, simplify your setup by mounting your ESP at boot and doing away with the post-update copying across (whether it was a service file or some other approach).

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

If you are using gummiboot, you are probably mounting your EFI partition at /boot. At least, that is what gummiboot expects. So I think probably getting the facts as you suggest is the best way to go here. Otherwise you may just make things worse.

Xorg log would be /var/log/Xorg.0.log for the latest. Xorg.0.log.old for the one before. One X per file, I think. At least, that's how mine are.

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

This seems to be getting off topic. The booting issues are due to OP unsuccessfully rolling back a kernel update. The real issue is the blank screen following a "successful" boot but before X has started.

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

I disagree. OP has to be able to boot before they can adress the kernel bug issue (if that is what is causing it)...

Can we not address it based on the chroot environment? I thought that's what we were going to do.

Yes: have you done that? Do you now have the correct kernel/modules lined up? If you think it is the kernel bug, then you should try booting from a pre 3.10 kernel.

Yeah, I went back in to the chroot and updated to the newest kernel from /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux-3.10.3-1*. /boot is mounted and it's still a black screen. And booting from an old kernel (like 3.9) is the one that gives me the Load modules [FAILED] error and drops me into emergency mode.

As for /var/log/Xorg.0.log, at the end of the file it says

Fatal server error:
[     36.642] (EE) xf86CloseConsole: VT_ACTIVATE failed: Input/output error

And before that there are lines that say  "(EE) xf86CloseConsole: KDSETMODE failed: Input/output error" and "(EE) xf86CloseConsole: VT_GETMODE failed: Input/output error".

I still can't find where I got the thing that automatically puts the stuff in /boot/efi/EFI/arch that needs to be there (initramfs-arch-fallback.img, initramfs-arch.img, vmlinuz-arch.efi)...

Edit: s/and it still doesn't boot/and it's still a black screen/

I do not have the package catalyst installed, but that is similar to what I'm seeing. before my warnings and errors there's lines about Unloading module evdev and other evdev stuff.

I should probably also mention that I'm on an Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A. This has an Intel HD Graphics 4000 for its video coprocessor. Adding this in original post.

Re: [SOLVED] -Syu broke things. After booting my screen goes black

Just to be clear: if you boot to the command line and don't start X, is everything OK? Is it just X that's the issue?

When I boot into the command line I still have a blank screen. I can log in and use speaker-test to confirm that it worked. I can then startx and open a terminal with my Openbox hot-keys and test that the startx worked with speaker-test.
