[SOLVED] GRUB not booting.

Hi all,

I just had some struggles due to my MSI motherboard not storing the boot config. However, I do see the GRUB boot option on my SSD now; however, the issue is when I try to boot into it, it just restarts and brings me back to the motherboards UEFI system. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Re: [SOLVED] GRUB not booting.

Not really.

Have you disabled SecureBoot?

Re: [SOLVED] GRUB not booting.

Please replace the image with a link, we have a 250x250px limit here.

Have you checked /boot/grub/grub.cfg? Share it here if you can't make any sense of it. Also post the filesystem UUIDs. Thanks.

I am posting a picture with my phone of the grub.cfg. I will post it as a link:

Re: [SOLVED] GRUB not booting.

Did you remember to install a kernel?

If you are talking about pacstrap then yes I did install a kernel. I just tried reinstalling it to no avail.

Re: [SOLVED] GRUB not booting.

Well then you configured GRUB incorrectly. Please provide the commands used to install and configure the bootloader, also include the commands used to mount the relevant partitions and enter any chroot. Thanks.

Honestly I don't have a log of the commands I've run. I used the installation guide. Is there a way to get that log? Or will just have to start from scratch and kinda record myself so you can see.

You don't have to start from scratch. Just configure GRUB.

Re: [SOLVED] GRUB not booting.

Check if the filesystem UUIDs for the partitions mentioned in the error message and see if it matches the entries in /etc/fstab — the UUID will change if the partitions have been reformatted.

Weird, those two UUID's match the boot (/dev/sda1) and the swap (/dev/sda2) UUID's. The root partition isn't mentioned.

Re: [SOLVED] GRUB not booting.

Your picture shows /etc/fstab but not the actual filesystem UUIDs. Did you check those?
