Hi, as the title says, I would like to change the keyboard layout of systemd-boot's editor (I mean the editor that appear pressing "e"  in the boot menu).

It's been almost one year, and I found that thread looking and "my posts". And still couldn't find an answer for this, sorry if I bump this thread, but no one has any idea actually, or at least knows if it's not possible ?

man systemd-boot wrote:

Note that unless configured otherwise in the UEFI firmware, systemd-boot will use the US keyboard layout, so key labels might not match for keys like +/-.

So check your firmware if it allows you to set the keyboard layout.

Not quite. Your motherboard doesn't have a BIOS menu, this is something only found on pre UEFI machines.
What you're referring to is the UEFI firmware menu.


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