Some laptops, mainly from around the time EFI was introduced, have hardcoded lookups for the Windows EFI file.
This can lead to some annoyances like:
- System not booting
- At boot time a message being displayed saying that there's no media to boot from and then after some time it boot's (because of fallback efi file location)
If your computer doesn't boot try this: https://solus-project.com/articles/trou ... rescue/en/
Then just do the following:
From the terminal
- Type: nano fixuefi.sh
- Paste the following code from above, or type it
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash current="$PWD" echo "Insert ESP partiton (ex: sda1) [Press Enter for sda1]" read partition if [ -z "$partition" ]; then partition="sda1" fi echo "Mounting ESP partition to boot" mount /dev/$partition /boot echo "Creating folders" cd /boot/EFI mkdir Microsoft cd Microsoft mkdir Boot cd Boot echo "Applying fix" cp /boot/EFI/Boot/BOOTX64.EFI ./bootmgfw.efi cd $current umount /dev/$partition echo "Fix Applied"
- Then press Ctrl+X, type y, and press Enter
- Type chmod +x fixuefi.sh
- Go to gparted and see in the disk in which Solus is installed the partition that has the flags: boot, esp
- Type lsblk -f and see wich one has a vfat filesystem (Not the best method but usually works)
- sudo ./fixuefi.sh
- Type your user password
- Insert your boot partition and press Enter
If you want you can delete that file with: rm fixuefi.sh
But I would not delete it because if something happens you can just run it again and it might fix it, it's just there ready to be used.
You can then reboot and see if it worked.
