I have a very weird issue with my newly installed fedora kde spin.
So, my goal was to upgrade the nvme ssd of my laptop (Dell Precision 5520) from 250G to 500G and at the same time, switch from manjaro to fedora.
One of the thing I really wanted to do was to switch from legacy boot (bios) to uefi so that I could use fwupd to update my firmware.
So I installed fedora kde spin without any problem in uefi with secure boot enabled. the uefi boot entry for fedora from my uefi firmware boot list was shown as
Fedora . After the install, fwupd found updates for my firmware and the firmware update went without a hitch
However, I needed to put back the previous ssd to finish backupping some data, so I switched back to legacy boot, changed the ssd, backed up some data, switched back to the new ssd and then everything went wrong.
I first forgot to switch back to uefi with secure boot, so at first the laptop could not boot. Then after switching back to uefi, I could only boot with uefi with secure boot disabled.
Also now, the entry for booting fedora in my uefi firmware is labelled with my ssd (500G samsung ssd…) instead of
The weirdest thing is that now, my laptop refuses to boot (only the dell log shows without ever doing anything) when my bootable usb key is connected.
When on fedora, when I connect my bootable usb key, the key is not recognized by plasma.
If I monitor
/dev/sdb actually shows up after connected the usb key, but if I launch the kde partition manager, the partition manager will freeze for at least 30 sec, and after it won’t show the usb key and
/dev/sdb will have disappeared.
One other thing I noticed is that when I first installed fedora, after grub, I had the message
booting in insecure mode once , but now I have it twice
I don’t know what is wrong with my setup so if anyone have an advice, I’m ready to try anything
