Not able to use snapper with rEFInd or systemd-boot

I am not seeing a choice to boot from a snapshot in either bootloader. I have installed snap-pac and snapper-support. There is a .snapshot folder in the Linux Filesystem root and there seems to be pre/post snaps listed in Btrfs assistant. What else do I need to look into?


Dual boot Windows 11 and Arch Linux on separate SSDs

Ryzen 3700x and MSI B550

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, if you want to boot off of snapshots, you should use grub. It mentions this in the installer on the bootloader choice screen.

As it stands right now, if my system breaks, how am I able to restore the snapshots?

If your system becomes unbootable, you would need to boot off an ISO and restore it that way.

Thanks for the clarification! If anyone has any advice for getting rEFInd to show backups, I would appreciate it. It doesn’t require secure boot to be disabled and it has a nicer interface.

There is this but you would need to figure out how to get it working:
