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

That did not give the endeavouros

When i grub-install: error: cannot get canonical path of ‘airootfs’

Can you post the output of efibootmgr ?

My output:
image

This error happens when you didn’t arch-chroot correctly.
Can you post the output of the commands? Maybe there is a typo or something that we can help with

Can you run this command before grub-install?

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Did not work for me, i have a desktop (lenovo)
I ended up installing refind…

I had a minor panic attack over this half an hour ago. Thank you everyone for the guidance on fixing it - I initially feared I had accidentally done a sudo rm -rf /. :sweat_smile:

Did you try refind? It worked for me…

Try

arch-chroot /mnt /bin/bash

before. Worked for me.

I downgraded grub on my kde btrfs but that was the first information i saw related to this problem. So if you don’t downgrade what is the fix? I see a lot back and forth. What is the real solution? Just update grub from a chroot?

Thanks mate, i was hoping it worked out fine but ok seems we need to wait and hope upstream fixes this. For now i keep grub in pacman.conf as ignore for update then.

Yes, the instructions are in the pinned post. There is no need to downgrade

Yes you can use rEFInd on a single boot.

That was successful.

The last command failed. Here is the entire log.

Will hardware inxi info help?

Thank you for your help. I am not a linux guru.

Since I have btrfs assistant and snapshots, will they work with rEFInd when I take Grub out?

What is your efi partition? based your your lsblk it looks like its /dev/sda1.
I think this is where things go wrong

So I am mounted on the wrong device? So I should do everything again but EFI on /dev/sda1 ?

and this error will not happen?

grub-install: error: /boot/efi doesn’t look like an EFI partition.

I will wait to hear from you. I thought maybe my BTRFS scheme was the problem, since I have no idea how it works, but it has never failed me.

This is the problem, its not sda3 for efi partition, check that and it will work

If you check my output, you will see that I mounted everything in /dev/sda2
when I mounted efi partition, I used /dev/sda1

I would wait for others to chime in with more details but, your efi partition is generally different from your root partition. Your root partition is /dev/sda3. It seems that you’ve mounted that correctly. but you’re mounting your edit partition wrong. I don’t know what your efi partition is, I can infer from the size of the partition.

the 300M is the EFI boot partition. This is an out of the box default BTRFS install in Calamares. Does this look better?

So, you should repeat the process, but when you mount the efi partition, use /dev/sda1
then arch-chroot and run grub-install, it will work now… fingers crossed here.

yep power off game over bios only ffs ((( :cold_face:
cant reinstall fresh os try arco after update death reborn don’t even boot I’m now on manjoro
cool surprise
