If you are using grub and the graphical interface won’t boot up, just restart your machine and follow the next steps:

  • Press e when the grub-boot menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to find the line that looks like this:
    linux /vmlinuz=linux root=UUID=...... rw quiet resume=.... (… = long snake of numbers)
  • put systemd.unit=multi-user.target right after rw like this:
    rw systemd.unit=multi-user.target resume=....
  •  I recommend removing quiet to get more informational output on boot (leave the rest untouched!!!)
  • Press Ctrl+X to boot with this parameter.
  • Now your machine is able to boot up without starting a graphical environment, and you can log in to proceed with repairing the system…
