I originally had Ubuntu 18.04 installed on my dell xps 13 (2017). A couple days ago, I replaced it with Ubuntu 20.04 due to constant error messages. Until today, I was able to use it without any trouble. However, I had to use Windows earlier today, and now when I was trying to boot Ubuntu back, I am unable to do so.
First error message
Unexpected return from initial read: Volume Corrupt buffersize 1000 Failed to load image EFIubuntugrubefi: Volume Corrupt start_image() returned Volume Corrupt
and then windows booted automatically.
In trying to resolve the issue,
Tried reinstalling Ubuntu 20.04 using LiveUSB, but got the error saying the system doesn’t have EFI System Partition
I upgraded from Ubuntu 19 to Ubuntu 20.04 yesterday and then on restart my Laptop (Alienware 17r4 , Nvidea GTX1070) freezez at “Loading initial Ramdisk”
i googled a lot and applied couple of workarounds but didnt help
– Adding nomodeset – Didnt help .
– Updated my Bios Firmware from Dell – Didnt help
– Updating grub2 – didnt help
The weird thing is that when i enable Secure Boot from Bios , it lets me Boot one time and then it does not let me boot upon restart . I again have disbale Secure boot , then when i boot i boot upto Login screen of Ubuntu but id does not let me pass through even after entering correct password and then when i enable secure boot it lets me boot Normally(very Slow)
