My Librem 13v2, ordered 9 months ago, arrived today, supposedly with Purism OS installed.
Am I doing something wrong, or is it not working? I’ve been trying for hours to get it to start.
- Plug in power.
- Start button
- Goes straight to Memtest86 5.01 coreboot 001 screen.
I waited two hours, tests were still not completed, so then I tried to start over bypassing them.
New screen with option: Esc -> Boot menu. If I don’t choose anything, the memtest screen appears after about 3 seconds, and I’m back to square one.
Boot menu has three choices:
- AHC I/2: Samsung SSD 850 EVO M.2 250GB ATA-9 Hard-Disk
- Payload [memtest]
- Payload [coreinfo]
If I select 1, I get the memtest screen again, and tests start to run.
If I select 2, I get the memtest screen again, tests start to run. Again.
If I select 3, I get the “Esc --> Boot menu” screen.
So whatever I do, I end up at the memtest screen, watching tests run forever.
There’s no way I can find to skip all the tests.
There’s a way to skip the “currently running test” (Press c, 1, 2, 0), but when I repeatedly do that, after about test 9, it just starts running test 2, and then I’m skipping tests in a circle forever.
There’s a way to specify a single test, or a list of tests, but these seem to be in addition to the default tests that start running: selecting a single test this way has no effect on the currently running tests.
Can anybody suggest a way to boot into the supposedly installed Purism OS – apart from trying to reinitialize everything from USB sticks?
