    Blank Screen Fedora 16 only after rebooting from Linux


    I use grub2 loader for both windows 7 and Fedora 16. The problem is that I get blank screen only after I reboot from Linux. If I shut down and start again the computer, the grub menu shows up. If I reboot from windows, the menu is displayed as usual. Is it a bug? I have searched all over the internet and didn't find exactly this issue. Why blank screen only upon rebooting from Linux? I use dual boot on acer aspire D257 notebook.

    The following solved my problem:
    Code:
    $ sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    
    
    change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=””  to  GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”reboot=efi”
    
    Press Ctrl-O to save and then Ctrl-X to exit
    
    then 
    
    $ sudo update-grub
    
    After this, don't reboot the machine. Power it off, then power on and enjoy :)
