No boot options at startup

Sat Jan 20, 2018 2:19 pm

I have a dual boot with Solus and Windows 10.
When EFI boots I have only the Linux Boot Manager option and selecting it Solus starts without asking anything.
How can I boot into Windows?

I don't understand: I have 100MB in /dev/sdc2 (the boot partition) with 94 MB used but I have only Solus and W10. With other distros I don't remember similar problems.

By the way, I had already tried to change the timer without success (because I doesn't have update the boot manager) but pressing space I'm now able to boot into Windows (and now the Windows entry appear in the boot options of the motherbord).

The error message is pretty obvious "No space left on device". 100Mb is too small, the partition should be 512Mb

Do you know if it is possible to move the actual content of the boot partition into another partition?
My boot partition was created automatically by Windows and now it's "blocked" between two other partition with no way to resize it. What I want to do is to create a new partition and use it as boot partition but I don't know if it is enough to copy and paste the content of the old partition into the new one.

Hi,
did you fund a way to overcome this?
I am in the same situation and do not know how to fix it.

Either extend the EFI partition (probably not an option for most people since Windows 10 will have created all the partitions next to each other) or create a new, bigger EFI partition and update the system to point there instead.

So let's just say that I create a new 500MB partition, that is located after the W10and the rest OEMs partitions.
I format it in fat32, flag it with the live cd as boot/EFI
What do I do next? I suppose that somehow I must move the data from the old EFI to the new.
And how do I point the system to the new EFI partition?

You don't need to copy anything. Just create the new partition and run:

Code: Select all

sudo bootctl update --path=/path-to-new-efi-partition
sudo clr-boot-manager update
Don't delete the old EFI partition. Windows doesn't know how to deal with it.
