Gnome fails to start DIRECTLY after rebooting from Window10. [SOLVED]

Post by jimbux » 2021/02/22 02:57:36

On my dual boot Windows 10 and CentOS 8.3 system with the latest linux-NVidia driver installed (via the "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-*.*.run" method for an RTX 2080 Ti), when I boot into Windows, and THEN restart and boot into CentOS - Gnome fails to start. I just end up with a black screen with the little underscore-cursor in the upper left of the screen.

When I RESTART again, and go back into CentOS, then Gnome starts fine.

Any ideas anyone?
Many thanks!

windows 10 does not shutdown and probably keeps your GPU programmed

try to disable windows 10 hibernation

These are my notes on dual booting:
1. Set time to UTC in both Windows and EL
EL:

Code: Select all

sudo timedatectl set-local-rtc no
Win:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation]
"RealTimeUniversal"=dword:00000001
2. Disable hybrid shutdown in Windows (as Administrator):

Code: Select all

powercfg -h off
Also, disable fast boot in UEFI BIOS

3. See 5.1.2 Chainloading an OS in GRUB manual [info grub2 b g c]

Thank you both, sml and BShT, that seemed to fix it! For the record, I don't believe my MSI motherboard/BIOS even has "Fast Boot" as an option. I searched pretty thoroughly in the BIOS and couldn't find it, casual google-searching seems to indicate that it's not supported anymore.
