So I just installed Linux mint MATE(install along side windows(7)) on my old laptop. Its an MBR without UEFI BIOS. When I headed over to the disks program after the installation I was shocked to see a /boot/efi partition created, partition type was(W95 FAT32). Is this normal or have I messed up? Till now its just working fine I even ran the update manager and it was happy after a reboot. Will this create problems long term? Should I reinstall or let it be?
Output for some commands which might be useful:
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "Installed in UEFI mode" || echo "Installed in Legacy mode" installed in Legacy mode
cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda5 during installation UUID=a4b92403-da07-45b9-a227-e2647a5bb4ab / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # /boot/efi was on /dev/sda3 during installation UUID=BDA1-AF68 /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 1 /swapfile none swap sw 0 0
And right now its showing a 20.3(una) update will I be fine doing that now?
