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 UUID=c0f183e3-612f-4424-a722-fa8894dc202a /home ext4 rw,relatime,data=ordered 0 2 # /dev/sda3 UUID=6129-A183 /boot/efi vfat codepage=437,noatime 0 2
It looks like you have installed and setup grub for BIOS systems and not for UEFI!!!
Please read arch UEFI wiki throughlly https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/UEFI, UEFI Bootloaders https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/UE … s#GRUB_2.x and last but not least GRUB https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GR … _systems_2
