[Solved] Discrepancy in Arch Wiki Regarding EFI System Partition

Hello Arch Wiki Community,

I've recently been following the Arch Linux Installation Guide and came across what appears to be a discrepancy related to mounting the EFI System Partition (ESP) during the installation process. In one section of the guide, specifically in the "Installation Guide" [https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Instal … le_systems], it instructs users to mount the EFI System Partition into /mnt/boot.

However, in another section, the "GRUB Installation" page [https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/GRUB#Installation] seems to suggest mounting the ESP into esp/EFI/.

Edited: my mistake, confused efi with esp

It says no such thing.
Please carefully re-read the GRUB article again.

The only possible discrepancy would be that the installation guide prefixes the mountpoints with /mnt in its examples since it assumes you are in the process of installing the system while boot loader articles and https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/EFI_system_partition don't.

It says nothing about mounting.  It just says a directory will be created under the esp.  It should be obvious that the esp would not be mounted in a directory under where the esp is mounted.
