[SOLVED]can't find the efi folder in /sys/firmware

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.

Re: [SOLVED]can't find the efi folder in /sys/firmware … _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
