I unfortunately had to install Windows 8.1 in my computer and after doing so, I tried to reinstall GRUB following the next steps:
- Booted with the Live CD
Mounted my system partition:
mount /dev/sda5 /mnt
Switched to the mounted partition with
grub-install --target=i386-pc --recheck /dev/sda grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Ok, I got GRUB back, Windows is working normally, but when I try to boot Arch, I get a message like:
Welcome to emergency mode! After login in, type "journalctl -xb" to view system logs, "systemctl reboot" to reboot, "systemctl default" to try again to boot in default mode.
When I log in and type
journalctl -xb, I get more than 2000 lines, but the only noticeable error is this:
systemd: Failed at step EXEC spawning /bin/plymouth: No such file or directory Subject: Process /bin/plymouth coud not be executed and failed Defined by: systemd [...]
In fact, there's no such file on
/bin directory (
I'm about to reformat, because I need this computer working.
How and why does this happen?
