I currently have my ESP partition at
/boot/efi (actually, it's not even mounted there, no entry in
/etc/fstab at all; I installed my system years ago and can't remember why it's setup that way but it's worked OK til now), and would like to have it at
/boot instead. I'm currently using GRUB 2 as my boot loader but I don't really know how it works (again, I installed it years ago and never had to touch it since then). And this is Arch Linux.
What would I have to do to make this happen?
Copy everything from
/boot to the ESP then add an entry to
/etc/fstab to mount the ESP as
/boot, but I suspect there might be paths to change in some config files now that EFI would be at
/boot/EFI rather than
Content of the ESP:
Context: I want to move to full disk encryption (using LVM on LUKS 2; currently, I have no encryption at all, neither
/home), and for that I need to have the kernel and initramfs on an unencrypted partition for GRUB to load (correct me if I'm wrong). I thought the easiest would be to simply have it on the ESP and thus make the ESP
/boot rather than
Suggestions for alternatives are welcome (please provide pros and cons).
