On my HP Pavilion laptop I have Linux Mint and Manjaro Linux installed, wheras the former has been installed before the latter.
The problem is that I only have the
ubuntu boot loader to choose so I tried creating another boot option via
sudo efibootmgr -c -w -l /EFI/Manjaro/grub64.efi -L "Manjaro" because
sudo efibootmgr -v did indeed only show the
After having executed above code I reexecuted
sudo efibootmgr -v and this is what it spit out:
Timeout: 0 seconds BootOrder: 0001,0000,3000,2001,2002,2004 Boot0000* ubuntu HD(1,GPT,28f41d4a-3c25-4379-8e81-7e4a28a618ca,0x800,0x100000)/File(\EFI\ubuntu\shimx64.efi) Boot0001* Manjaro HD(1,GPT,28f41d4a-3c25-4379-8e81-7e4a28a618ca,0x800,0x100000)/File(\EFI\Manjaro\grub64.efi) Boot2001* EFI USB Device RC Boot2002* EFI DVD/CDROM RC Boot3000* Internal Hard Disk or Solid State Disk RC
So I thought I'm good now and I rebooted my computer. However the laptop still booted into the old boot loader and after having booted again I rechecked
sudo efibootmgr -v and noticed that my newly created
Manjaro option was gone.
So I'm assuming that it got deleted during shutdown or reboot (it persisted a logout) but I have no idea why and how to fix it.
One guess I have is that the boot entry was somehow invalid and therefore got deleted but I just can't see any error when comparing it to the existing (and working) ubuntu option.
So the question is: Does anybody know how to come over this problem?
