Ive just installed a fresh new instance of arch-linux on my old iMac. Unfortunately, the apple default efi bootloader isn't be able to load the efi-entry.
My partitions are:
#1 EFI #2 Mac OS X #3 Rescure Mac #4 boot (my /boot-partition for linux) #5 encrypted
partition 5 is my enrypted partition, which contains the lvm volume-group which contains 3 partitions (root, home and swap).
I've mounted efi (#1) on /boot/efi. In boot, there is my kernel-image vmlinuz-linux. In /boot/efi/loader/entries/arch-encrypted.conf, I've edited the file so the option "linux" has /vmlinuz-linux. Now it looks like that:
title Arch Linux linux /vmlinuz-linux initrd /initramfs-linux.img options encrypteddevice=UUID=<UUID of partition #5>:lvm root=/dev/mapper/vg--base-lv--root quiet rw
But now when Im rebooting my system, arch isn't booting but an error message will get printed containing "\vmlinuz-linux can't be found".
I guess this is so because the linux-image is located on an different partition but this efi-entry points to the efi-partition where the entry is located itselv.
Can anybody help me with this please?
