PC booting straight into BIOS menu after Arch install [Solved]

Hi there!

As the title suggests, I have an issue where the PC won't even recognize the bootloader (GRUB) and will boot straight into the BIOS menu. This are my PC specs:

    Motherboard: B360M PRO-VDH (MS-7B24) using MSI Click BIOS 5
    CPU: Intel Core i7-8700 CPU
    RAM: Crucial DDR4 2400 PC4-19200 8GB
    SSD: Toshiba-TR200 240G

Some notes about my install:

    * Create a GPT table with two partitions on my SSD: 550M for ESP and the rest for a Linux filesystem partition
    * Format ESP with Fat32 and filesystem with ext4
    * Mount filesystem at /mnt and ESP at /mnt/boot/efi
    * Install base system at /mnt
    * Generate fstab & chroot into /mnt
    * Ran pacman -S grub efibootmgr
    * Ran grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=GRUB --recheck
    * Ran grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    * Exit chroot unmount /mnt & reboot

Now, after installing GRUB, if I run "efibootmgr", the first option that comes up is "GRUB" as Boot0000, but as soon as I reboot the PC it goes into the BIOS menu and when I boot into the installation USB to recheck,  that entry is gone

Any suggestions, or is there any additional info that I need to provide?
