I ran boot-repair, so here's the link to the report: http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/fTmkr8mQwq/

I'm posting this from the live session.

So, when I got done re-installing Lubuntu with properly set partitions for UEFI/EFI mode, I ran boot-repair, then rebooted. When I tried to go into it, it showed the loading graphic for a bit, then black screen (with blinking cursor), and then a little later this error (not exactly the same as in the number preceding it ['cause I saw this before the whole process when I set "quiet splash" to "splash", but otherwise the same).

[85.063480] snd_hda_intel 0000:00:03.0: HSW/BDW HD-Audio HDMI/DP requires binding with gfx driver

Hand-typed it but I wrote it down so it should be spot on.

I have a feeling that this has to do with not having the proprietary Nvidia drivers.

Nvidia 820M if you're asking.

I'll try to go into recovery mode and *try to replace the Nouveau drivers with the official Nvidia drivers, and see how that turns out.

  • You show sda4 as the FAT32 partition with .efi boot file, but it does not say it is the ESP. You can use gparted to add esp and or boot flags to make it the ESP. UEFI only boots from a FAT32 partition that is the ESP - efi system partition. – oldfred Sep 10 at 3:31
  • @oldfred, I flagged it in a live session, hope that works, and I tried to install nvidia drivers but that didn't quite work. – fjgwey Sep 10 at 9:28
  • @oldfred so I can boot into regular session if I set /etc/default/grub to "nouveau.modeset-0". I installed Nvidia drivers afterwards and I got a straight black screen which didn't budge with "nvidia.modeset=0" or "nomodeset", so I had to go into recovery mode, purge the nvidia drivers and come back. – fjgwey Sep 10 at 10:23
  • Once you install nVidia driver, you should not use nomodeset boot parameter. Did you install correct nVidia driver? And only one, as you must purge a previous nVidia driver, before installing another.Uninstall the .run nVidia driver. askubuntu.com/questions/219942/… Install nVidia askubuntu.com/questions/1026179/how-to-install-a-gtx-1060 & askubuntu.com/questions/61396/… – oldfred Sep 10 at 14:13
  • @oldfred okay I'll try to completely purge it – fjgwey Sep 10 at 17:55
