RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Fixed In Version: anaconda-
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
.`--leavebootorder` no longer changes boot order Previously, using `--leavebootorder` for the bootloader kickstart command did not work correctly on UEFI systems and changed the boot order. This caused the installer to add RHEL at the top of the list of installed systems in the UEFI boot menu. This update fixes the problem and using `--leavebootorder` no longer changes the boot order in the boot loader. `--leavebootorder` is now supported on RHEL for UEFI systems.

Comment 5 Vladimír Slávik 2021-11-26 15:38:54 UTC
PR with changes: https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/3726

Marked as "needs manual testing" due to need for testing on a real machine. The VMs we normally use do not persist UEFI vars or some such.

Comment 7 Vladimír Slávik 2021-11-30 18:02:40 UTC
PR is now marked as mergeable, waiting for a build so the QE can test.

Comment 12 Jan Stodola 2022-01-26 17:32:20 UTC
Confirmed with anaconda- that:
* bootloader --leavebootorder in the kickstart file doesn't change the boot order
* inst.leavebootorder on the kernel command line doesn't change the boot order
* the boot order is changed and the system boots from disk if leavebootorder is not applied in kickstart or kernel cmdline

Tested on a physical UEFI machine.

Marking as Verified:Tested.

Comment 16 Jan Stodola 2022-01-28 16:34:00 UTC
Checked that anaconda- is in nightly compose RHEL-9.0.0-20220127.4
Doc text and doc type matches.
No further testing is needed during verification based on comment 1

Moving to VERIFIED
