Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 445014
grub.efi needs to read MSDOS partition type 0xEF EFI System
Last modified: 2009-05-05 17:14:27 EDT
Description of problem:
grub doesn't belief partition type 0xEF is a valid FAT file system type for
reading. it should, for EFI systems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
pjones, I know we worked out a patch for this. Where did it go?
Is it solved by the grub-0.97-44.fc11 package from todays Rawhide?
Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team
Matt -- is this in now or do I need to hunt it down?
not sure, looks like it from the changelog. Stuart has been doing the EFI testing, so reassigning NEEDINFO to him. :-)
I just used grub (0.97-47) to boot to a disk that an MBR partition table, with one partition of type 0xEF, and it worked, so I guess this is fixed.
