Description Filipe Brandenburger 2018-07-16 18:57:33 UTC
Description of problem:
grub2 generates invalid config on x86_64 without no EFI. In particular, it usehttps://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/grub2/pull-request/6s "linux16" for the initramfs instead of "initrd16".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
(On a machine with no EFI:)
1. sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
2. sudo grep initramfs /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Actual results:
- Booting breaks with "error: invalid magic number."

Expected results:
