    Also you have a swap partition where a regular installation of Ubuntu automatically creates a swapfile.

    Your earlier attempt at fsck with sda was acting on an incorrect/missing device.

    I have zero experience of using fsck with LVM but you can try this via a live session:-

    For your EFI partition
    Code:
    sudo fsck /dev/mmcblk0p1
    For your Ubuntu partition
    Code:
    sudo fsck /dev/mmcblk0p2
    Out of curiosity, why did you choose to install with this partition scheme?
    I think its because I tried to install with a secure install and had the same issues so reinstalled again and expected Ubuntu install to clear-down things it had created. Obviously not so maybe this is part of the issue?

    Please attach screen shots.

    You are using LVM which is required if using encryption, but otherwise is a bit more advanced as it uses volumes inside one large partition. The ESP must be outside the LVM as that is the only way UEFI can read it.
    LVM offers some advanced features but at a bit more complexity. Often better not to use unless somewhat familiar with Linux, partitions & command line.

    Quite possibly part of the issue.
    Are you using encryption now?

    Re: Ready to kick this laptop to the kurb!

    Sorry guys, UK based here so went to bed.

    I cleared the multiple partitions and reinstalled Ubuntu via USB completey standard not changing anything.

    Again... After first reboot logged in without issue. Shutdown and it powered up okay.

    2nd shutdown and powered up it got stuck again on splash screen.


    I will attempt to login this morning take some scrrenshots of what the BIOS is looking like and also what the script now shows with regards to what partitions are where.


    Thankyou for all your help so far. Feels like we might be finally getting somewhere.

    Re: Ready to kick this laptop to the kurb!

    Good morning guys,

    Before doing anything I just tried to boot it up and I get this message.

    Code:
    [ 0.440184] x86/cpu: SGX disabled by BIO/dev/mmcblkop2: clean, 139842/1875968 files, 1822792/7502336 blocks
    [ 112.474154] watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 22s! [swapper/1:0]
    [ Number changes...] watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 22s! [swapper/1:0]
    [ Number changes...] watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 22s! [swapper/1:0]
    and it just seems to sit there for many iterations and not do anything...

    Quick update... this just popped up also...

    Code:
    [93.634644] rcu INFOL rcu_sched self-detected stall on CPU

    Update - I've left it for over and hour and it looks like it hobbled into Ubuntu, running slow as hell and hardly useable but at least it did eventually boot.... Kinda.


    Now that I got into the system I re-ran the same code after the re-install of UBUNTU and the results are below:

    Code:
    • NAME SIZE TYPE FSTYPE FSUSE% FSAVAIL MOUNTPOINT
    • mmcblk0 29.1G disk
    • ├─mmcblk0p1 512M part vfat 2% 503.2M /boot/efi
    • └─mmcblk0p2 28.6G part ext4 23% 20.2G /
    • mmcblk0boot0 4M disk
    • mmcblk0boot1 4M disk
    A screenshot of the Disks in Ubuntu currently. Should match up with what is above.


    BIOS Screenshots as they are are the moment...



    Just a note - I did just move the emmC Card: Sandisk 1NAND DF4032 up to the Number 1 Spot and rebooted the machine. It booted into UBUNTU without issue.

    However... I have done this a number of times and after several correct shutdowns and restarts it will go back to freezing again.

    Re: Ready to kick this laptop to the kurb!

    In your UEFI set-up:-

    Intel Virtual Technology - Disable is worth a try
    Boot mode and Boot priority - Can you change to UEFI

    Partitions look OK now.

    Code:
    [ 112.474154] watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 22s! [swapper/1:0]
    [ Number changes...] watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 22s! [swapper/1:0]
    Code:
    [93.634644] rcu INFOL rcu_sched self-detected stall on CPU
    I've never seen those two messages before so I do not know what to suggest.

    Tried the above mentioned in the BIOS.. and when it Saved and Exited BIOS is boots into UBUNTU No problem.

    When shutting down... and restarting after 10 seconds I get the following:

    Code:
    BusyBox v1.30 (Ubuntu 1:1.30.1-4ubuntu6.3) built-in shell (ash)
    Enter 'help for a list of built-in commands.
    
    (initramfs)

    Here is some info https://ostechnix.com/how-to-fix-bus...ror-on-ubuntu/

    In post 25, the image shows SD Card Reader DF 4032 - Is this an eMMC storage device soldered to the motherboard or an SD card inserted into the Card Reader slot?
