Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

If the mean the rest of that /etc/fstab entry ( /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 1 ), that's standard for mounting any EFI System partitiion (ESP). It just needs the correct UUID to mount your newly created /dev/sda ESP and for you to install Grub there. Okay, thanks, that's what I wanted to know.

Only you know whether or not "UUID=091D-8A1D" is correct for your newly created ESP on the /dev/sda drive. Try it and see.
I'm sorry my post clear. I wasn't really asking about UUID=091D-8A1D--I got that from GParted--so much as the rest of the code.

Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

The problem with the procedure that you followed is that LM 18.3 is still trying to mount the now non-existent ESP that you deleted rather than the new one that you created. That's also the reason, BTW, for the longer delay in launching LM 18.3 and it needs to be corrected in the LM 18.3 installati...

Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

I thought you were going to leave things as good enough with the Grub boot loader on the /dev/sdc EFI System Partition (ESP) as the default for launching both LM 18.3 installed on /dev/sda1 and LM 19.3 installed on /dev/sdc1. The problem with the procedure that you followed is that LM 18.3 is still...

Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

Boot into whichever system you want in charge of Grub. Create a partition using all the unallocated space, formatting it fat32. Apply. Right-click, select manage flags and tick the box for boot (will automatically tick esp also). Then run sudo grub-install /dev/sda (the device, not the partition). ...

Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

Thanks, arvy. I plan to upgrade the LM 19.3 install to LM 20.0 and then phase out the LM 18.3 install. Since the system is working okay as it is now, I suppose I will just restore the EFI partition on sda and not re-install GRUB.

Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

Thanks for your help. Yes, my sdc has its own EFI partition. And your system's UEFI (NVRAM) boot order configuration has two Grub boot loader entries (shown as "ubuntu"). So, in the circumstances, I guess you have a choice. You can re-instate the EFI System Partition (ESP) on /dev/sda and...

Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

Does your /dev/sdc drive have its own EFI System Partition (ESP)? If not, as linux-rox has said above, it's difficult to understand how you are booting the LM 18.3 installation on that drive unless it was installed for "legacy" BIOS-MBR compatibility support mode (CSM) booting and you are...

Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

Once you're booting from a proper boot loader again, I expect you'll get the usual Grub menu, including the ability to boot 18.3. Thanks for your recent reply. I'm sorry I wasn't more clear. I am currently booting via Grub 2.02-stable. I have LM 18.3 and LM 19.3 installed on different SSDs--sda and...

Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

Someday, maybe I'll figure out how the system boots without an EFI partition, but haven't so far. FWIW, I think you should fix this. Boot into whichever system you want in charge of Grub. Create a partition using all the unallocated space, formatting it fat32. Apply. Right-click, select manage flag...

Re: Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

you can just use the Gparted program, to re-create that 500Mb partition, & then label it as EFI in Gparted & also as Bootable, as well. was LM18.3 and 64 bit system ? and LM19.3 also an 64 bit system ?. Thanks for your reply. Yes, both are 64-bit installations. When you say "re-create&...

[SOLVED] Mistakenly deleted EFI system partition

I have LM 18.3 and LM 19.3 installed on my machine. While trying to clean up a failed Windows 10 installation, I mistakenly deleted the EFI system partition (sda1) for my 18.3 installation using GParted in 19.3. Consequently, I could no longer boot to 18.3. So, I ran a LiveUSB of 18.3 and then resto...

The last couple of days I've been getting Postfix errors when installing/updating packages via the Synaptic Package Manager or via 'apt' in the terminal.

I'm calling this solved because it is mostly solved and because the thread has gone dead. I still need help on moving the encrypted /home but may post that in a separate thread in coming days.

Re: Moving LUKS partition, firmware, and changing file system

Thanks for your reply, Mute Ant. Yes, I understand that the OS is using the full SSD but I want to free up space on it by moving /home to the HDD with the added benefit that if I have to do a bare metal reinstall the files in /home will be on the HDD. In any case, I ended up doing two reinstalls but...
