My computer doesn't boot. I format my Toshiba laptop with a bootable USB drive. I make this my_partitions, and when i restart the computer after the installation, my computer does not boot. Then i run boot-repair and finishes with this message. I reboot ant nothing happens. I review some questions before, but could't find anything yet. Can someone help me please?
There is a blog post discussing this at http://adityagilra.blogspot.com/2014/11/fixing-ubuntu-boot-problems-with-boot.html
"""You can now reboot your computer. Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sda1/EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi file!""" I think they just mean that: enable UEFI and set the boot order to first boot HDD in the BIOS.
But you can check using efibootmgr:
I installed efibootmgr using synaptic. (see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2023086)
(If you're not root, use
sudo efibootmgr -vcan become root by
sudo su -) root@ubuntu:~# efibootmgr -v BootOrder: 0000,0000,0000,0000 Boot0000* ubuntu HD(1,22,2faf1,d6f60eae-849f-43e3-836c-2280067f3161)File(\EFI\ubuntu\shimx64.efi)
According to What is the difference between grubx64 and shimx64?
shimx64.efi is for Secure Boot.
As noted at the Arch Boot Process:
A boot entry could simply be a disk. In this case the firmware looks for an EFI system partition on that disk and tries to find a EFI application in the fallback boot path \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI (BOOTIA32.EFI on IA32 (32-bit) EFI systems). This is how UEFI bootable removable media work.
Honestly, the warning message should probably be removed from that
boot-repair utility, altho I'm not so sure it's well-maintained.
