Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 743381
anaconda should install grub-efi when doing an EFI install
Last modified: 2011-10-24 23:33:18 EDT
pjones wants to create a grub-efi package for EFI installs of F16 which will not conflict with grub2, so once that's done, anaconda should install that package when doing an EFI install. This change will have to be made to ensure EFI systems actually boot, so marking as release critical.
grub2-1.99-7.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
Discussed at 2011-10-07 blocker review meeting. Accepted as a blocker per criterion "The installer must boot and run on systems using EFI other than Apple Macs". Note the grub2 update mentioned does not fix this bug, that was a mistake.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 16 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing grub2-1.99-7.fc16'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
grub2-1.99-8.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
Discussed at 2011-10-14 blocker review meeting. This will need re-testing with TC1.
grub2-1.99-10.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
the fix is actually in -9, bodhi's just going nuts. tc1 is fine for testing this.
after a fresh install of tc2 via EFI, grub-efi is installed, grub2 isn't, system boots. close!
grub2-1.99-10.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
