I´m a bit at a loss here. Perhaps there´s someone out there who can shed some light on my “problem”.
First off: there´s nothing wrong with my system. It boots properly. So not a real problem here. But still, the following puzzles me a lot.
When installing my present system Linux Lite 6.2. using the live ISO for Linux Lite with my ventoy-stick I used the “something else”-option in
As I have 3 partitions set up (root, home and a 3rd data partition) I let root and home be formatted and took special care not to format the 3rd one as there is my personal data on it.
Now to the bootloader:
As far as installation is concerned, I always use an external HDD to put my Linux distro on (right now it´s
But on my PC there´s also the built-in HDD, which still has WIN8.1 on it (at the moment it´s
During the installation I know I also took special care in putting the bootloader on the correct drive, the external HDD (which is
/dev/sdb at the moment).
I´m very sure of that.
Taking all this into consideration I cannot understand the following:
fstab looks like this:
batcat fstab ───────┬────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── │ File: fstab ───────┼────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── 1 │ # /etc/fstab: static file system information. 2 │ # 3 │ # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a 4 │ # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices 5 │ # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). 6 │ # 7 │ # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> 8 │ # / was on /dev/sdb1 during installation 9 │ UUID=411331c4-730c-4a53-963b-e58f5733e688 / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1 10 │ # /boot/efi was on /dev/sda2 during installation 11 │ UUID=FC63-685C /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 1 12 │ # /home was on /dev/sdb2 during installation 13 │ UUID=7f7b5dd9-60ef-4dd1-98dd-f585c921f2cf /home ext3 defaults 0 2
What? /boot/efi ? And it´s on the internal disk…
Really How can that be
So I looked at the following:
rosika@rosika-Lenovo-H520e ~> lsblk /dev/sdb NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINTS sdb 8:16 0 931,5G 0 disk ├─sdb1 │ 8:17 0 23,3G 0 part / ├─sdb2 │ 8:18 0 35,6G 0 part /run/timeshift/backup │ /home └─sdb3 8:19 0 390,6G 0 part /media/rosika/f14a27c2-0b49-4607-94ea-2e56bbf76fe1 rosika@rosika-Lenovo-H520e ~> lsblk /dev/sdf NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINTS sdf 8:80 0 465,8G 0 disk ├─sdf1 8:81 0 1000M 0 part ├─sdf2 8:82 0 260M 0 part /boot/efi ├─sdf3 8:83 0 500M 0 part ├─sdf4 8:84 0 128M 0 part ├─sdf5 8:85 0 439,1G 0 part ├─sdf6 8:86 0 450M 0 part └─sdf7 8:87 0 24,4G 0 part
… which seems to confirm my uneasiness about the whole thing.
Can someone tell me a terminal-command with which I can definitively find out where the bootloader is located
Many thanks in advance and many greetings.
