I have a 4-disk setup:
- 240GB NVMe SSD (
- 120GB Sata3 SSD (
- 2TB HDD
- 3TB HDD
I installed Windows on
/dev/sdd which is the 240GB NVMe SSD. After installing Arch several times I finally got it working and booted to find out that I had created two EFI partitions: one on
/dev/sdc1 (120GB SSD) and the other (that Windows created during installation) on
Now I would like to move the GRUB from the 500MiB EFI on the Sata SSD to the NVMe drive, which I successfully completed, but Windows is not recognized and performing
ls /EFI/EFI/Microsoft/boot I get that the file or directory is incorrect, maybe because
ls /EFI/EFI reports NO Microsoft folder, that is probably caused by Arch that is mounting/booting the EFI partition in the Sata SSD in /EFI all though I booted from the GRUB installed on the WD240G (NVMe drive) in the boot menu at startup.
So, Arch does work via GRUB, Windows does work selecting his own boot manager, but the GRUB does not boot Windows and Arch has no Windows folder or files inside his EFI, which now should be the same as the Windows EFI but seems not, all though I performed:
mount /dev/sdd1 /EFI
grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=esp --bootloader-id=GRUB
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
- Why am I still not able to boot Windows from the Windows EFI GRUB?
- Why does Arch does not see Windows in its EFI?
- Do I have to format/delete the
/dev/sdc1EFI partition created during Arch installation or do I have to reinstall Arch a final time with the correct setting now that I know how to do it, mounting
