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

What should sudo ls /boot/efi/EFI/ contain in the end?
For me it contains:
boot EndeavourOS EndeavourOS-grub tools
I guess I could delete EndeavourOS since I followed the pinned post and the name of the boot enrty is now EndeavourOS-grub?

mine shows: boot endeavouros-3873 when i do sudo ls /boot/efi/EFI/

Sorry I did not mean to reply to you directly.

no problem

Had this problem too, thanks for a solution :slight_smile:

hey so i tried the instructions on this thread by @sradjoker. the grub-install command showed no errors, i rebooted and was welcomed by the pink endeavour grub screen but then i got this:

IMG_20220826_110327

and after pressing some key and exiting i arrived at this screen:

IMG_20220826_110337

i picked the second option and was able to boot normally.

Hey there. Tried to chroot into my system but when im trying to mount my partition running following:

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/boot/efi

but i get the following error:

mount: /mnt/boot/efi: mount point does not exist.

This is my sudo fdisk -l output

Can someone help what am i doing wrong? why i cant mount?

edit: im currently running these commands on live endeavouros and have the exact grub error

Hi, I need some help to reset the grub on my system. I was using zotero for my research and suddenly my laptop froze and I had to reboot the system. I am already into the live-USB but I am unsure which partition to choose I know my disk is a 30Gb samsung SSD but I am not clear on how to reset the grub, I don’t have a btrfs system or anything like that. Could you please help me? It’s 3:33Am and in the morning I have classes.

You need to mount /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdb2

sdb1 is your EFI and sdb2 is you linux filesystem

Is your live USB the most upto date version?

Yes it is. Its the latest endeavouros

Thanks! I almost made the mistake of mounting sda4.

You may have fixed this, I haven’t got to the end of the thread!!!

arch-chroot on BTRFS:

sudo mount  /dev/sda2  /mnt -o subvol=@  #(Your root partition on disk)
sudo mount  /dev/sda1  /mnt/boot/efi
sudo arch-chroot /mnt

Then, log into wifi if needed:

downgrade grub

Follow instructions, type exit to leave chroot (important!).

This will give you a working system. Then to permanently fix follow the instructions above. Basically:

  • Remove from IgnorePkg
  • Update - do not reboot
  • Reinstall grub
  • Rebuild grub
  • Reboot

can i create boot and efi folders myself and try that way?

sudo mount  /dev/sdb2  /mnt 
sudo mount  /dev/sdb1  /mnt/boot/efi
sudo arch-chroot /mnt

Does that work? In order…

Why would you? I don’t think it’s even possible. I mean as in to create the whole ESP by hand.

For what it’s worth, I updated yesterday shortly after the notice was posted, ran grub-install as instructed in the pinned post and haven’t had any problem, it boots normally to the grub menu and works fine on both my installed kernels (regular and LTS). I’m on a 2020 Lenovo Ideapad Gaming 3, no dual boot, ext4, and hadn’t touched grub files from the default eOS installation (April 2021 release, IIRC) except for making it select the last chosen kernel.

The whole fiasco isn’t “how do I fix it” but “why is this happening?”
