Grub 2:2.06.r322.gd9b4638c5-1 won't boot and goes straight to the BIOS after update

If system is UEFI it is best to make sure CSM is off and set UEFI only no legacy. :wink:

I’ve just been skipping the grub update since this occurred.

No harm in that, right? :thinking:

Is there any solution for the out of range error after selecting any installed kernel?

That means you are possibly booting the old grub efi entry.

Go into your BIOS and see if there is a different entry

Thanks, I’ll try that.

I followed this

But I still have the same issue. It doesn’t work even though I’ve followed everything.

My live iso stuck on stalled noveau

What is the actual issue you currently have? What behaviour are you seeing?

Not being able to boot into endeavour and I’m on my laptop’s startup menu. I have 2 entries on EOS in my boot menu.

I was also trying to do the grub-install solution but it say /boot/efi doesn't look like an EFI partition

You can test if it is UEFI or Bios if you don’t know.

[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS

What happens specifically? Things “failing” and “not booting” don’t help.

We need to know exactly what happens when you try to boot. Is there an error? Does something else happen?

it just goes back to the startup menu when I choose either of EOS option in the boot menu

It sounds like something when wrong when you tried the resolution steps.

Try again.

This time save all the full output from all the commands and post them here before you reboot.

This is everything after chroot.

[root@EndeavourOS /]# 

I’m still struggling with boot issues after the last grub update.
After doing almost everything written in the post I still can not boot my machine normally.
What I did before:
Booted with live USB, installed grub (as root), changed boot sequence with efi-bootmgr -o, etc, as descibed here.
Result: Now I can boot using the boot manager (by pressing F12) but not normally, where I get the error message “symbol ‘grub_debug-malloc’ not found”.
I also tried to enter the ‘Inside H20 Setup Utility’ (by pressing F2). All seems to be OK, expect of the Boot menu: there is just ONE entry: “2.”. (No HDD or USB entries)
Is there anybody out there who has detected similar behavior?
Is there a solution for this?
Thank you!
László

So /dev/sda6 is your root-partition.

What is /dev/sda8 ?
