GRUB not loading in a UEFI dual boot scenario.

Hey there everyone, I'm having a bit of trouble dual booting arch and windows 7.
So far using the beginner's guide I have partitioned my drive with sda3 as my boot partition and sda's 4 and 5 as my / and home partitions respectively using GPT partitioning, so that the two partitions created by my windows 7 64-bit install won't be affected.

GRUB has installed correctly on sda3 and the windows 7 loader was detected when I ran grub-mkconfig however after booting I am greeted with a windows message stating that bootmgr was not found. So as far as I can tell it seems like grub isn't being loaded at all. Is this because GRUB is installed on sda3 rather than sda1?

The content of my /etc/fstab can be found here:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information
# <file system>	<dir>	<type>	<options>	<dump>	<pass>
# /dev/sda4
UUID=1dd5f519-d9a2-4030-9075-adc5b90b4470	/         	ext4      	rw,relatime,data=ordered	0 1

# /dev/sda5

Re: GRUB not loading in a UEFI dual boot scenario.

It looks like you have installed and setup grub for BIOS systems and not for UEFI!!!

Please read arch UEFI wiki throughlly, UEFI Bootloaders … s#GRUB_2.x and last but not least GRUB … _systems_2
