[SOLVED] Efi boot entry disappears after reboot. MSI BIOS E7B05IMS.1A0

I am installing a fresh version of Arch. And it seems that I have similar to this problem https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=228761 but solution doesn't help me ( I have same MSI bios)

My layout

/dev/sda disk
/dev/sda1 /boot
/dev/sda2 /

I did all according to the installation guide

Install it with grub-install

grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader=ARCH

no errors

then when I check it with efibootmgr -v while chrooted I got the following error

[root@archiso /]# efibootmgr -v
BootCurrent: 000C
Timeout: 1 seconds
BootOrder: 0000,000C,000D,0001,000B
Boot0000* ARCHCould not parse device path: Invalid argument

Although when I exit chroot all seems fine

...

reboot - no efi entry in bootmanager

2. Install it manually with efibootmgr

efibootmgr -c -p 1 -d /dev/sda -L ARCH -l '\EFI\ARCH\grubx64.efi'

Then reboot and it is gone again


3. Then I booted to EFI shell, found the '\EFI\ARCH\grubx64.efi' and booted just fine.

Previously I had debian installed on this machine which was working just fine. So I tried to reinstall it just to check the bootmanager entries debian installer adds. It worked and it seems pretty the same

I tried to boot using debian entry but replaced the kernel to Arch but it drops to grub rescue shell.

Re: [SOLVED] Efi boot entry disappears after reboot. MSI BIOS E7B05IMS.1A0

Sounds like faulty firmware. Install the bootloader to the fallback location as well...

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

But why debian installer works just fine?

I have no idea, you'd have to ask them.

I have an msi motherboard as well. it does indeed have screwy firmware. It will automatically delete any boot entries referring to an ESP on any drive besides the one that I dual boot with a factory install of windows... unless there is a file present in the fallback location, then adding and keeping boot entries to it works normally.

Re: [SOLVED] Efi boot entry disappears after reboot. MSI BIOS E7B05IMS.1A0

I bought a MSI motherboard (B450 PRO CARBON AC) 5 months ago and never had a problem until today. I turned on my computer this morning and the grub entry disappeared like when I install Windows on the same hard drive. Ok, no problem i chrooted my Arch installation using the Arch Installer CD and i restored my grub entry using this command as usual:

grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id=arch_grub --recheck

I booted up my Arch local installation and I worked in a long session and after restarting the computer my motherboard didn't post. I tried to post several times and finally i could unplugging the HDMI connector from my monitor and what I saw when plugging it in again was the Windows login screen. I lost my grub entry again...

If this does not change, I will rename the EFI/Archlinux/grubx64.efi to EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi since the entry to boot Windows is never lost.


Excuse my poor English.

MSI's are notorious for this and overriding the windows boot loader is not the correct approach and not what is being booted, follow the alternate install method posted in slithery's link.
