Ladies and gentlemen... It finally happened... I finally killed a Linux install!

Was stuck at 1024 x 768, installed NVIDIA drivers, crashed, restarted and ended up in an endless login screen loop and then boom, crash and is no longer recognised in Grub.

Don't know what I did seeing as the machine hasn't been on for 3 days ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Guess I'll have to do a reinstall when I have internet again!

    > when I have internet
    So that Australian term "internot" is actually a thing? 🙃

    Would've been interesting to hear how exactly the machine got fucked up though... Perhaps you could retrieve the last commands through a chroot? Or even just retrieving your history file from the live session.. you know, for scientific purposes 🙃

    And hmmm, might fire up my old arch USB and do some digging and see what I can find... Shall get back if I find anything

    @Condor small update.

    Couldn't chroot into the installation nor could I mount the drive from a live installation, just wiped the drive and did a reinstall ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
