• Booting Problem on ThinkPad T540p


    Hello people,

    I got some minor problems while booting to any linux distribution (Windows is fine, just checked to find out if it’s a hardware problem).

    It’s hard to describe the problems so I just filmed them using my phone:

    And the error you can see at the end:
    Messages

    As soon as it loaded the login screen, everything is kinda fine. No problem I realized so far.

    What I did so far:

    • Updated BIOS in March this year, there’s no newer version until now
    • Tried many different distributions - Same problem everywhere
    • Tried Windows to check if it’s a hardware related problem - Windows works fine

    I’m currently running the Nouveau Drivers if that’s any help, not sure.

    Thanks in advance. :)

  • I don’t mean to seem picky here, but I can’t quite tell what the lines say when you boot up:disappointed:.Could you zoom in further maybe?

    Thanks!

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

    Just have some relatives over. Be back in about a week

  • Sorry, apparently embedding the image went wrong. :(

    Here’s a, hopefully, better picture:

  • Without deeper search i can see ACPI errors:
    give us

    dmesg | grep acpi
    

    May you need to load the thinkpad-acpi module:

    sudo modprobe thinkpad-acpi

  • Thank you for the clearer picture:grinning:.

    Have you made sure to disable fast boot in Windows? If you are using UEFI for Windows, are you using the same for Antergos? (same thing applies to BIOS).

    Hope this helps!

    UEFI is enabled in BIOS but Legacy boots first according to the settings:

    I just got Antergos installed now, no way to enter Windows :(

    Modprobe didn’t help. :/

    thinkpad_acpi

    is already loaded… the thinkpad model have some known issues with Linux with acpi… but if you have latest UEFI Firmware installed and your system is running fine, i would not do anything.

  • Well, I took the dmesg output when I loaded the module before. So it’s probably related to that. I’d just like to fix that booting issue. :(

  • I see Beyerdynamic HPs in the video :).

    I’ve never had a booting issue with my TP L440, but your bios looks identical. Did you install Antergos with the same BIOS settings? I have UEFI only enabled, no legacy enabled, and have only installed and booted with UEFI only enabled, and never experienced this issue, with any Linux distro. I have integrated Intel graphics though, and not NVIDIA, with the Intel microcode intel-ucode installed.
