I'm really trying to figure this out and spent a good amount of time on it already, but I have no idea on how to solve that problem.

Any suggestion is welcome. Any question is welcome. If you need details, I'll get them.

Additional information:

  • I can boot fine into Windows 10

  • I tried switching secure boot on and off, but it did nothing.

  • While reinstalling Windows 10, I had to use downloaded drivers from Intel. Not sure if relevant, I can provide more details if needed.

  • The main Linux partition is mountable and my files are still there and readable. It seems unaffected. I also have a full dd copy of the SSD before the Windows reinstall.

    • Here is a snapshot of the pre-reinstall SSD from a graphical partition manager:

      screenshot

  • The GRUB menu shows up like expected. I did a GRUB reinstall with boot-repair, following the "recommended repair" route. However I don't know if it actually did anything. Before that "repair" I was actually able to access the GRUB menu and start booting on Ubuntu. However, upon encountering the boot failure described in this post, I assume GRUB was messed up and tried to repair it.

  • Concerning these ACPI Error: AE_NOT_FOUND, While resolving a named reference package element: I've had these error messages while I was still able to boot so it might not be the cause.

  • I don't remember reading the mtd device must be supplied error before though.

  • When installing Windows after Ubuntu in UEFI mode all you have to do is to change the boot order back to "Ubuntu" in UEFIO settings > Boot (and then run sudo update-grub in Ubuntu to add the Windows entry to the Grub menu), nothing else. I suspect you didn't do what you should and instead messed with things you don't understand. Aug 9, 2022 at 15:40
  • As mentioned in my post, GRUB is fine. It knows which partitions to boot onto. I did another update-grub nonetheless and as expected, nothing changed.

Just solved the problem. These error lines from the journalctl -xb output were the clue:

août 09 14:19:58 ivan systemd[1]: dev-nvme0n1p7.device: Job dev-nvme0n1p7.device/start timed out.
août 09 14:19:58 ivan systemd[1]: Timed out waiting for device /dev/nvme0n1p7.
août 09 14:19:58 ivan systemd[1]: Dependency failed for /mnt/share.
août 09 14:19:58 ivan systemd[1]: Dependency failed for Local File Systems.

After reading this I realized that there was no /dev/nvme0n1p7 partition anymore since it was removed just before reinstalling Windows 10 (it used to be a data partition shared between Windows and Linux). Turns out that reinstalling Windows wasn't (directly) the cause of the problem.

I removed the following line from my /etc/fstab:

/dev/nvme0n1p7    /mnt/share   ntfs   defaults    0 0

And now lo and behold, I'm now writing this from my formerly inaccessible linux session. Life in the big city.

  • You spared me reinstalling Linux :D I also screwed up the fstab with some bad config. May 17 at 7:29
