[SOLVED]Unable to get old install up with new motherboard and efi

Hi

I not able to boot up an old install with a new motherboard, the same setup worked fine with the old motherboard.

From a live cd with uefi boot.

mkdir /mnt/arch
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/arch
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/arch/boot
mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/arch/home
arch-chroot /mnt/arch

grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=boot --bootloader-id=GRUB
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

When I boot I get thrown into a GRUB shell. The disk is not listed as an UEFI boot disk in the BIOS.

GPT or MBR partitioning?


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

You can't have an ESP on MBR(msdos). There's simply no such thing. UEFI requries GPT.

I simply do not know. But then I am a bit of a clown smile

I simply nuked the boot partition because 'hey why not...' so the kernel...yea...I reinstalled the kernel and then changed fstab accordingly.

I am now booting.

Thank you all.
