(Solved) Boot specific systemd-boot entry using efibootmfr

Hello,

I bought a nice little tablet that can boot Linux, Android and Windows. I set it up using a GPT/UEFI/systemd-boot setup and I can boot all 3 OSes when I connect a keyboard, because systemd-boot picks up my .conf files. The problem occurs when I use the tablet by itself. Since the touch screen and the hardware buttons don't do anything in the loader, it always boots the default entry. I created a shortcut to boot "Windows Boot Manager" on the next boot using efibootmgr, since Windows has its own boot entry. The other one is "Linux Boot Manager", which loads the default entry after a 3 sec timeout. Is there a way to create another boot entry, which would point to a specific .conf file for systemd-boot and boot Android? This way, I could create another shortcut for efibootmgr -n XXX and boot Android on the next boot.

Thanks!!

If you are already using systemd-boot anyway why don't you just use this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sy … _next_boot ?
