Re: Stuck at grub prompt after reordering partitions

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Thanks for your quick reply!

I faintly remembered the dracut thing, so I tried that first - but it
didn't help.

I will look into the UUID stuff tomorrow, although I had already checked
that gparted really did not change UUIDs when  moving partitions around.
And as I said, I can get into Fedora after fiddling with the Grub

And, as an aside, when I simply exit the grub command line without doing
anything else, I boot into Windows immediately!?

But, as I said, I will recheck everything you mentioned.

So what am I missing?
BTW, I did NOT use the grub2-install command which shoud not be used on
UEFI systems.
I recently had similar problems.  These are the things to check:
o use blkid to get the current UUID(s)
o check /etc/kernel/cmdline if it exists - make sure the UUID (if
used) is correct for the new root disk
o check /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg for correct UUID(s) - as far as
I am aware you would have to edit the file to fix
o check /boot/grub2/grub.cfg for correct UUID(s) - you should be able
to update if needed with "grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg"
o update /etc/fstab with any changed UUIDs
o these things get recorded in the initramfs - update with "dracut
--force --regenerate-all"  [or use "man dracut" for commands to just
regenerate a single initramfs]

As I recall at least one of the above things has tripped me up in the
past when moving disks/partitions around.
