can't find the efi folder in /sys/firmware and can't install grub

Downloaded the iso file from the official mirror, live iso works fine but when i tried installing i noticed that there's no efi folder in the firmware directory but it's replaced with acpi and it's my first time installing arch. Is there any workaround or do i have to download other iso file?


P.S. Forgot to mention that i'm installing it on a vm.

That means you booted in BIOS mode, not native UEFI. It's not an ISO problem, it's a firmware problem.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/In … _boot_mode .

Check the bios/uefi firmware for your motherboard


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
