I've installed Fedora 18 on UEFI system, when I boot the computer I get this error message:

File "/EFI/fedora/x86_64-efi/lvm.mod" not found
no server specified

What should I do?

It's a known bug (#906203). Apparently, as suggested in the bug report (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&id=906203), doing the following should work:

cp /boot/grub2/x86_64-efi/*.mod /boot/efi/fedora/x86_64-efi

You can use a live environment for this combined with chroot. On the other hand, if you have no special need for LVM, use plain old partitions and it should just work (TM).

Thanks a lot, i will try it, but could you tell me what is LVM and how to use plain old partitions as you say ? – Rafael Adel May 26 '13 at 20:18
LVM is logical volume manager. It's a layer that sits on top of physical drives so you can bundle them into groups and present them as a single entity. When you do the install, go through and select a custom partitioning scheme and just partition the drive up as desired without LVM. – slm May 26 '13 at 22:29
Note the bug says this only happens with /boot on LVM, and that that's not officially supported. If /boot was a regular partition it would have been fine... if the automatic partitioning scheme put /boot on LVM that sounds like a (different!) bug. – sourcejedi May 27 '13 at 10:13
