Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

Few days ago I updated my laptop and found out that it broke something on my system. So I downloaded installation media, dd'ed it to the usb and tried to boot it. Same thing: just black screen, can't reach login prompt. Ctrl-Alt-F<n> do nothing.

I tried to download previous release (2019.01.01) and it worked. I guess it could be hardware issue with my laptop and systemd 240, but I couldn't find anything about it. Here is the output from the dmidecode: https://termbin.com/zoqg

edit:
Sorry, I did not notice that forum has separate section for laptop problems. Can somebody with moderator privileges move this topic there?

@kleinepanzer: use the Report link at the bottom of your post to ask the moderators to move the post.

I recommend you change your title to say "Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b" and then report to ask to move it to "Installation".

I was able to boot installed system into emergency shell, so at least now I have access to the command line.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

Can you provide some logs from the older ISO that is able to boot?

# journalctl -b
# lspci -vvv

You can send the output of a command directly to a paste service like ptpb.pw and note down the URL:

command | curl -F c=@- https://ptpb.pw

Alternatively, try adding the nomodeset kernel parameter when booting the new ISO.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

Does adding the boot options "debug earlyprintk=efi,keep" (switch efi to vga if the system is bios booting) produce any output?
Edit:
If there is still nothing try "adding acpi=off iommu=soft"

Archiso 2019.02.01 with "adding acpi=off iommu=soft" starting up but keyboard does not work , so I cannot put in any commands.
On installed arch with kernel 4.20.8 ("adding acpi=off iommu=soft"):
journalctl -b https://ptpb.pw/Q7Yr

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

On the installation media:
"debug earlyprintk=vga,keep" causes a lot of output, still ends up in black screen
"acpi=off iommu=soft" lets system boot to the automatic login, but turns off the keyboard

On the installed system:
"debug earlyprintk=efi,keep" - lots of output, black screen
"acpi=off iommu=soft" causes "ERROR: device `UUID=xxx not found" and drops me into emergency shell, keyboard is not responsive.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

As "acpi=off iommu=soft" prevented the blank screen what about "iommu=soft"?  I expect the lack of keyboard is from acpi=off.

Only with "iommu=soft"?  Everywhere black screen.

On the installed system with "acpi=off iommu=soft" the keyboard doesn't work either.
Enter through onboard

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

Some more:
Arch based SystemRescueCd-6.0.1 ( kernel  Long-Term-Supported linux-4.19.20 )- same thing: just black screen

-------------------
I have installed for test linux-lts and linux-lts-headers
kernel > linux-lts-4.19.17-1 don't work

For normal work it is necessary downgrade linux to linux-4.20.4 or linux-lts to  linux-lts-4.19.17-1

I thought linux 4.20.4.arch1-1 produced a blank screen?

No, kernels more (">") linux 4.20.4 or  linux-lts-4.19.17-1 give out a black screen.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

Just to confirm you tried 4.20.5.arch1-1 and that produces a blank screen?
If so that limits the possible causes to commits between 4.20.4 and 4.20.5 could you bisect between those two releases?

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

I've also been able to boot after downgrading to 4.20.1.
I want to try to bisect versions, but I don't have all kernel releases in my cache and can't find them on https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/l/linux/

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

I'm also experiencing exactly the same issues on an EeePC 1215B, entire system up to date.
I just tried downgrading the kernel and can confirm that for me it's working with 4.20.4 and it's not with 4.20.5.

Yes, 4.20.5.arch1-1 produces a blank screen.
As well as linux-lts-4.19.18-1  - blank screen. Linux-lts-4.19.17-1 - works fine.

I restored the system state to 25-Jan-2019 . Created a new mirrorlist and add:

Server=https://archive.archlinux.org/repos/2019/01/25/$repo/os/$arch

sudo pacman -Syyuu

After installed last linux 4.20.10-arch1-1 &  linux-headers-4.20.10.arch1-1
It did not help.

Re: Installation media 2019.02.01 does not boot on Asus EeePC 1215b

The following assumes the base-devel group and git are installed and I recomend enabling Makepkg#Parallel_compilation to reduce build times

$ git clone git://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git --single-branch --branch "packages/linux"
$ cd packages/trunk
$ git checkout fc89f9441710951d2ad565f207ecd13e57318236 #4.20.4.arch1-1
$ cd ../..
$ cp -r packages/trunk linux-git
$ rm -rf packages
$ cd linux-git
# Edit replace the PKGBUILD and 90-linux.hook with the ones below
$ makepkg -rsi #this is to confirm 4.20.4 as built on your system does not have the issue update bootloader for new kernel if needed

$ cd linux-git/src/linux
$ git checkout v4.20.5
$ cd ../..
$ makepkg -ersi #this is to confirm 4.20.5 as built on your system does not have the issue select the default option for all prompted options

$ cd linux-git/src/linux/
$ git bisect start
$ git bisect good v4.20.4
$ git bisect bad v4.20.5
$ cd ../..
$ makepkg -ersif

$ cd linux-git/src/linux/
$ git bisect $result #substitue good or bad here
$ cd ../..
$ makepkg -ersif #repeat these four lines and test the generated kernel until git has found the bad commit

It's going to take a long time...
~10 hours and it's still compiling.
