[SOLVED] Arch live Media no longer accessible after botched install

I attempted to install Arch / grub on a new uefi system following the arch install guide on an nvme drive. I had some issues as I initially failed to disable CSM. After disabling CSM I "successfully" installed the bootloader to /efi
partition (please confirm /boot/efi is deprecated). It seems though that I made some mistake as I am only brought to a grub shell (not rescue).
I'm thinking that the issue may be that I have a bad fstab due to generating it while CSM was active.

Now my system will no longer boot from the live USB, I only have access to grub shell. Is this expected behavior after installing grub?

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] Arch live Media no longer accessible after botched install

Solved this myself. I failed to create the grub.cfg before restarting. I was able to boot the live Media after reinstalling the USB disk.

# grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
