I recently shrank my main Fedora partition with gparted live to make room for a dual boot. Upon selecting to boot into Fedora 32 in GRUB, I boot into emergency mode.

Reading from the log files, “localhost kernel secureboot: Secure boot could not be determined (mode 0)”.

When turning on secure boot from BIOS, Fedora boots fine. Just not from GRUB.

cat /etc/fstab/

UUID=1d1cf166-70b2-4b1f—a616-2cef5472c757 ext4 defaults 1 1
UUID=1b4b-55eo /boot/efi vfat umask=0077, shorname=winnt 0 2
UUID=b82f9af-c1d4-41e8-858c-e95b0c55fa69 none swap defaults 0 0

Thank you for your time

  • Is the cat /etc/fstab output accurate? For example, the first UUID shows no mount point. Is the sudo blkid output accurate? I'm no expert, but I've never seen a partition device followed by a / rather than a :. – rickhg12hs Sep 5 at 22:02
