Arch Linux installation problem with GRUB

Image: https://imgur.com/a/4NJXK04

Hey, this is my first time ever setting up arch linux system I followed the instructions on arch wiki accordingly with a little bit of help from chatgpt.

As you can see on the image I provided there is something wrong with GRUB.

I installed GRUB using pacman targeting vda1 which stands for EFI partition in my case.

It was mounted on /boot

Every command I entered worked just fine although after running pacstrap -K /mnt base linux linux-firmware I got some errors which I can't recall ( I ignored them but I don't think that could be the issue please prove me wrong)

Aside from that, I don't know what else could go wrong (excuse my sloppiness it's close to midnight in my country and I already gave up for today)

Thank you for your help in advance.

Re: Arch Linux installation problem with GRUB

Looks like you installed grub but didn't configure it.

Re: Arch Linux installation problem with GRUB

Okay, can you tell me exactly what I didn’t configure and is there a way to configure it directly from GRUB CLI?

Did you follow the instructions in the Wiki about GRUB configuration? https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/GRUB#Configuration

arch-chroot from the install iso, don't forget to mount the boot partition and fix it from there.

Hmm, looking back at it it seems like I indeed forgot about it.

let me check that out.

Re: Arch Linux installation problem with GRUB

Okay, it seems "grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg" while chrooted did the trick, thanks for your support.

Re: Arch Linux installation problem with GRUB

or you installed grub wrong first post here.

an often fail is

 grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub.cfg 

in truth it must written

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

try that ... and say me, if it works.

This was solved 2 days ago, and none of this makes sense or is applicable.
