1 Hello,
2
3 I've made another run and this, using this document guide:
4 http://code.google.com/p/pentoo/wiki/UEFI#UEFI_pentoo-installer_guide_for_UEFI_and_GPT
5
6 it all seem to be fine; except grub 2 cannot find the kernel.
7 The GPT is read fine by grub2. But, grub 2 cannot find
8 the kernel, explicitly the error messages from grub2:
9
10 error : file '/boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.3.9-pentoo' not found.
11 error: you need to load the kernel first
12
13
14 Here is the fstab:
15
16 UUID="EFA3-8415" /boot/efi vfat default 0 1
17 #sda2
18 UUID="cf76566e-bf4e-4dee-ab9d-6fc2bcdd5b1b" /boot ext2 defaults 0 1
19 #sda3
20 UUID="0ef33e5a-7869-418e-86be-1ef5e16b4495" none swap sw 0 0
21 #sda4
22 UUID="fc8efde7-359e-41b1-94b0-8a9a868bdf24" / ext4 defaults 0 0
23
24 shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0
25 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom audo noauto,ro 0 0
26
27
28 If you look at the table, which I followed, the names are in all caps, but
29 I used lowercase; could this be the problem?
30
31
32
33 The table from the aforementioned doc:
34 Select "gpt" as Partition Table
35 Create the following partitions:
36
37 # FS Size mount point name
38 /dev/sda1 vfat 256M /boot/efi UEFI
39 /dev/sda2 ext2 64M /boot BOOT
40 /dev/sda3 swap 4G SWAP
41 /dev/sda4 ext4 16G / ROOT
42
43 Booting GRUB-2 through UEFI
44
45 On "4. Install Bootloader" choose "UEFI-GRUB".
46 The UEFI boot partition will be /dev/sda1.
47 The GRUB device path will be (hd0,2) - the default, /dev/sda2 where the
48 kernel resides.

51 ANY IDEAS?
