I'm having trouble installing grub.

I used to have a UEFI boot setup but it constantly failed so I decided to use normal boot instead. Unfortunately, the system doesnt boot into grub.

What I did was:

  1. Disabled UEFI by choosing legacy oprom only in the BIOS settings.
  2. Create a ef02 partition in /dev/sda3.
  3. Install grub like this:


grub-install --recheck /dev/sdx
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

But nothing is booting except my arch-linux from a USB.

My motherboard is Asus 7 Maximus.

Maybe someone can help me solving this?

Thanks a lot in advance.


Perhaps your bios is attempting to boot the USB drive first. Check your boot order in BIOS.
