What is the "/mnt/EFI/boot" command? What is it supposed to do?
At which step are you at in the Beginner's Guide?
In the Beginners Guide, it mentions if you have a UEFI Motherboard to go here
Which part of that article does that command come from? I searched the whole page, there is nothing that resembles what you claimed to run on the command line - nothing.
Which step are you at? What do you mean you "put" that in command line, do you mean as an actual command at a prompt, in the kernel line, in a config file, on a notecard shoved in a toaster? What is the actual error output? What did you expect the command to do (repeat of drcouzelis's question)? What is that command (repeat of drcouzelis's question)?
You're going to need to be a lot more forethcoming if you have any hope of getting anywhere with this.
The only part of the page you referenced - that I can find pertaining to the bizarre command you wrote - is the section describing how you'd find the device path for the UEFI System Partition. If that's the case you need to make sure you read the guides very carefully, as (in that specific use case) the command is thus;
# findmnt /boot/efi
Minus the # of course, as this is to denote that you are logged in as root.
The command you say you wrote into the terminal is in fact the type of output you'd expect from writing the aforementioned command. Having said all this, if you're writing nonsense to the terminal expecting results I think you should start from scratch, or at least double check what it is that you wish to achieve, as that section is for gummiboot which now has its own installer.
Ah that output does look like the attempted command. But even there, it should not be /mnt/boot/efi, just /boot/efi, which would indicate that this is being done from the live environment rather than from a chroot.
