@pbriec Will have to check my code when I get home. Don’t have that here at the moment. But I am wondering about the third line
done. Not sure where this is coming from but I can’t remember having that in my debugging output. Possibly I am wrong, will see later.
I worked with JJ on a similar issue where it seems to hang on exit_boot. But this is a HP Stream 11 x360 device. I really wonder if we see buggy UEFI firmware in both cases?!?
Can you please try booting Live Linux Distros, like Ubuntu Live, System Rescue Disk or so. Will be interesting to see if those boot properly.
The other thing you can try is booting that downloaded kernel image directly from a UEFI USB boot stick. To create one format as FAT32 and create directory
X:\EFI\boot\, put the kernel binary into that and name it
bootx64.efi. Now boot off this USB stick and see how far you get. If it proceeds beyond the exit_boot stage it will crash in a kernel panic later because there is no root filesystem to mount and boot off. That’s ok. We just want to see if it can get past exit_boot when started in a different way from a USB stick instead of PXE boot.
