Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION

Pm-suspend works nicely, the system goes to sleep, after waking it up, everything works. (I had to disable C6 state in the BIOS to work around a previous issue where resume from suspend didn't work). Now only one problem persists: after a pm-suspend my grub doesn't load.

Instead of grub I get the following error message:
Reboot and Select proper Boot device

At this point, booting into arch setup environtment using a pendrive and issuing

grub-install /dev/sda

command fixes my grub and everything works again.

WHAT I HAVE TRIED SO FAR
1. Before shutting down my system I have issued a the grub-install /dev/sda
command, but I still get the same error message. Seems like grub-install
only fixes the problem when issued from the arch setup environment. Very strange.

2. Tried to disable one of the hooks using:

touch /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/01grub

to no avail. Afterwards I have reinstalled pm-utils using pacman -S pm-utils in order to restore the 01grub file.

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

This may be too obvious too ask, but did you add the proper 'resume' parameter to your kernel line in grub?

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

Yes, I did. The resume line points to my swap partition. By the way, why does suspending to ram has to temper with the boot record of the hdd?

Hmm as far as i know it shouldn't, are you sure your pm config isn't set to hibernate by default?

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

I have always issued pm-suspend. Going to suspend and returning from it is very fast. The led on the power button blinks as it does duing a suspend from windows. After starting from hibernation I should have seen some early part of the boot process which did not happen. So, for these reasons I think it is really suspending.

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

This is really weird, almost sounds like you have a stale / persistent hibernate image that it's trying to boot from. You could try formatting your swap just in case or remove the RESUME parameter altogether, but it's a long shot, so sorry for not providing you with better ideas...

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

Update

This seem to have nothing to do with the pm-utils scripts. After digging through /usr/bin/pm-suspend, I have found that pm-suspend uses the command

echo -n "mem">/sys/power/state

to put the computer to sleep.

Issuing this command alone was enough to screw up my grub. Now I am looking for what exactly happens when you echo "mem" into /sys/power/state. Any help appreciated.

Update again
The strangest of the strange happened. Instead of restoring grub, it is possible to fix the boot issue simply by removing and reattaching the battery. So, all in all this seems to be some nasty bug in the BIOS.

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

Maybe I can add to this:  I have an eee pc 1015bx, which is similar. I've noticed that, although I've only suspended the laptop to RAM, it might go to hibernation by itself after several hours (or minutes, I don't know exactly).
This is the BIOS trying to save your battery-life. So are you really sure that the laptop was in suspend mode and not in hybernation?

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

I also have the same issue with rebooting after suspend to ram on my Asus Eee Pc 1215b. No idea how to fix it! Just to add some info which I recently discovered: if I add the kernel booting parameter acpi_osi="Linux", then the suspend to ram works regardless of the state of C6 flag in BIOS. But if the system is booted without this parameter and the C6 flag is on, the laptop does not wake after the suspend to ram.

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

I have the same issue. Asus 1215b E-450 apu.I installed Archlinux last week, with latest kernel and the netbook doesn't boot after suspend. It boots only removing AC power and battery OR leaving some hours turned off (it happend to me yesterday).
I cant understand what can it be. I know it happends with other distros, but don't know if this is a problem related to ASUS or FUSION APU or any other thing...
I have almost 2 years with this problem.. Has anyone have luck with this ?????

(What exactly does with the MBR / GRUB / "restart-fairy" when the PC restart ??)

Edit: A minutes ago I suspend the PC, after I tried to restart and doesnt work. I holded the power button to shutdown and 10 minutes after I power on the PC and it boots!. So i think it means you have to plug the battery off, or wait a few minutes to properly restart the pc after a suspend.

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

Please don't necro-bump threads. A lot has changed in Arch since this thread was originally posted. You would be much better off starting a new one and linking to this one if it seems relevant. (Though I'm not sure why you think it is relevant or why you think you are experiencing the same problem since yours sounds quite different.)

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

cfr, thanx for replying. I have THE SAME gnidov had. as he said:

"Pm-suspend works nicely, the system goes to sleep, after waking it up, everything works. (I had to disable C6 state in the BIOS to work around a previous issue where resume from suspend didn't work). Now only one problem persists: after a pm-suspend my grub doesn't load.
Instead of grub I get the following error message:
Reboot and Select proper Boot device."

I know this is a very old post, but is the exactly the problem I have, so I prefered asking people who had the same problem before starting a new one. Sorry if i shouldn't reopen old posts.

About changes in Arch, now I can say that the problem is still there, despite new kernels and changes.

Thanks!

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

So now I'm confused. Originally, you said the "fix" required you to wait to to disconnect AC and battery etc. and then you could reboot. Now you say that what you have to do is reinstall grub. Could you clarify this?

Are you using systemd?

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

I did not say anything about reinstalling grub.

Yes, i'm using systemd

When I restart the netbook AFTER suspend-and-resume, instead the grub2 menu I get a blinking cursor and after a minute the following message "Reboot and select proper device..", just as the picture of the original message.

Just to clarify:

Case A:
1- power on netbook
2- grub2 menu
3- Login Archlinux
4- shutdown -r now - > netbook restart
5- grub2 menu, and everything ok
6- big_smile


Case B (restart after suspend):
1- power on netbook
2- grub2 menu
3- Login Archlinux
4- close lid -> suspend -> power led blinking
5- open lid and press button -> netbook on
6- shutdown -r now - > netbook restart
7- after bios text, instead of grub2 I get a blinking cursor and after a minute the following message "Reboot and select proper device.."
8- sad


Case C (power on after suspend):
1- power on netbook
2- grub2 menu
3- Login Archlinux
4- close lid -> suspend -> power led blinking
5- open lid and press button -> netbook on
6- shutdown -h now - > netbook powers off
7- press power button -> power on netbook
8- after bios text, instead of grub2 I get a blinking cursor and after a minute the following message "Reboot and select proper device.."
9- sad


Case D:
1- power on netbook
2- grub2 menu
3- Login Archlinux
4- close lid -> suspend -> power led blinking
5- open lid and press button -> netbook on
6- shutdown -h now - > netbook powers off
7- wait for 30 min
8- press power button -> power on netbook
9- grub2 menu, and everything ok
10- big_smile

You said you had "THE SAME" issue as the OP who had "exactly the problem I have" and that you therefore "prefered [sic.] asking people who had the same problem".

But the OP's problem involved a need to reinstall grub to disk and, moreover, a need to do that via an alternative boot.

Why do you think you are experiencing the same issue as opposed to somewhat similar symptoms?

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

I have the same PROBLEM, but the SOLUTION is not necessary reinstalling grub. If you read (I suppose you did) post #7 gnidov said :

"The strangest of the strange happened. Instead of restoring grub, it is possible to fix the boot issue simply by removing and reattaching the battery. So, all in all this seems to be some nasty bug in the BIOS."

I dont know if it is really a BIOS bug, but I know (because I tried) the solution is not reinstalling grub.

So Yes, I have the same problem. I just can add that with an updated Archlinux the problem is still there, and instead of removing and reattaching the battery (or reinstalling grub) you have to wait a few minutes to boot again.

I will be writing a new post, so you can be happy.

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

Look, there are two ways of understanding "same problem". One is that the symptoms are the same. The other is that the underlying cause is the same. I agree you have similar symptoms to the OP. Maybe the underlying cause is also similar. I just don't think that's obvious given that a solution that worked for the OP does not work for you and that a solution which isn't mentioned originally does work for you.

By the way, you might want to look into moving away from pm-suspend since you are using systemd.

I have systemd and now I dont use pm-suspend, but when I used it I had the same problem. Maybe I have to move the post, but This is the only place I found people with the problem I have, so please leave me to ask, and I`ll leave this thread nicely.

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

Well, if reinstalling grub also works for you then it does start to sound as though the problem might be the same and not just similar in some ways. But when I asked about grub before, you indicated that your issue had nothing to do with needing to reinstall grub. If that didn't help in your case, it wasn't obvious how similar the problems were.

So do you not have the problem now (using systemd to suspend)?

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

Let me join to your interesting discussion about THE SAME or NOT THE SAME issue :-) . I also have this latop (asus 1215b e350) and confirm the presence of the issue: the laptop does not reboot after waking from suspend to ram. Initially it was thought that the grudb becomes damaged, but now it is clear that the grub is ok and the problem is in the incorrect bios state after suspend. No body knows yet how to deal with it. Ones I tried to ignore the problem with the reboot and just suspended/waked the laptop several times. This finished bad: the laptop stopped seeing the HDD at all! Hopefully the reboot with unplugging the battery resolved the situation. So the issue is still here. I have some idea how to test it further. I use legacy bios boot and never tried to move to uefi mode which is also supported by the laptop. Since the problem appears due to the incorrect interaction of linux with bios, may be using the uefi mode will resolve it? Does anybody tried this?

Re: Pm-suspend kills my grub [Asus Eee Pc 1215B]

That was my initial thought, maybe just try UEFI. But in my many many tries I never managed to install it the UEFI-way. it's just to darn complicated and the wiki not clear enough in what to do.
If someone tested it and found out that the problem does not persist in UEFI-mode I'm willing to give it another try
