Comment 1 Paul Whalen 2016-03-22 14:18:12 UTC
grub2-efi-2.02-0.27.fc24 was untagged on arm.koji, yesterdays (03212016) install media worked as expected. 

The resulting install did not boot with 'shim.efi' as noted in bz#1309147, failing to unpack the initrd. When replaced with 'grubaa64.efi' the system boots to log in on the mustang.

Comment 3 Paul Whalen 2016-04-08 19:17:25 UTC
Reopening, this is also happening with grub2-2.02-0.30.fc24 . 

Again I am able to boot with the 'grubaa64.efi', using the default 'shim.efi' results in a syncrhonous exception on both the mustang and seattle.

Comment 4 Paul Whalen 2016-04-08 19:20:17 UTC
Adding Mark for his input.

Comment 5 Paul Whalen 2016-04-14 16:54:23 UTC
When built with F23 tools, grub2-2.02-0.30 works as expected with no Synchronous Exception.

Comment 11 Jon Masters 2016-05-11 07:58:47 UTC
The shim does a bunch of relocation of the EFI (GRUB2) binary that's probably failing in handle_image. I've just started poking, but what I will do is instrument the code and see where it is falling over.

Comment 12 Jon Masters 2016-05-17 06:12:09 UTC
We determined that the shim had a bad patch and needed upgrading to a newer build. Pending update on status of that.

Comment 13 Peter Robinson 2016-05-17 08:42:43 UTC
We're packaging shim for aarch64 separately so we don't need to keep it in lockstep for x86_64 or ia32. Review done, should be built today and in tomorrow's compose with luck.

Comment 14 Peter Robinson 2016-05-18 10:03:15 UTC
Should be fixed in today's compose:
