[SOLVED]The volume “boot” has only 3.3MB disk space remaining.

Computer startup Prompt

“The volume “boot” has only 3.3MB disk space remaining”

How to add /boot space and clean /boot space?Thanks!

_____________________________________________________


The solution is as follows:

1. Delete the EPS disk from the PE and rebuild a large disk.
2. The recovery boot tool of PE resumes the boot.
Windows is done here.
3. Enter the ARCH installation interface and surf the Internet first.
4. Directly mount the root directory and boot partition (that is, the new EPS disk).
5. Delete the original fstab and rebuild it.
6. Go to the chroot.
7. Uninstall all original GRUB and related items.
8. Delete all remaining GRUB in /boot (if any).
9. Reinstall and generate all of them according to the steps.
10.IF

os-prober will not be executed to detect other Bootable partitions.
Systems on them will not be added to the GRUB boot configuration.
Check GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER documentation entry.

Modify the configuration file /etc/default/grub 2 to add configuration items
GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false
Re-execute update-grub (it doesn't exist when I try to do this, but it doesn't seem to matter).
11. Check if any Linux components are missing from /boot and reinstall Linux (i.e., the core of Linux).
12. Check grub. CFG. Both Linux and Widonws should be ready.



Thanks for @Member .

Re: [SOLVED]The volume “boot” has only 3.3MB disk space remaining.

fdisk -l /dev/sdb

The questions are
1. is sdb2 indeed only 92MB or is the flsystem shorter than the partition (I guess you used the guided installer script to break your system?)
2. What is sdb3 - there doesn't seem to be a filesystem?

sdb looks like a mostly standard windows installation with an additional sdb5 partition.  https://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=619
Windows likes to create the ESP as small as possible.

My computer has two hard drives, one with Arch and one with Windows. Sdb2 is indeed only 92m. He's on the hard drive where Windows is.

Sdb3 I don't know what it is, it seems to have seen some separate space under Windows.

Yes, it does have a Windows in it.

Re: [SOLVED]The volume “boot” has only 3.3MB disk space remaining.

a) delete unnecessary stuff from the /boot partition (unlikely possibe, 100MB is not much for linux AND windows)
b) re-partition the windows drive (essentially re-install windows…)
c) boot from sda w/ the grub installation on /boot on sda1

“boot from sda w/ the grub installation on /boot on sda1”

Is there any information about how to operate this?

Re: [SOLVED]The volume “boot” has only 3.3MB disk space remaining.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/GRUB
Unmount /boot, re-install grub and the kernel(s) and install grub to sda - then use the UEFI/BIOS bootloader or boot device selector to chose where to boot from.

Notice that this assumes that you're using grub as your bootloader to begin with.

ls -lhR /boot

Thank you. I'll try.
