Un-busting GRUB with arch-chroot

Created: — modified: — tags: linux

properly this time

  1. Boot from archiso CD/DVD/USB

  2. Prepare dir structire - in my case, it was:

     mount /dev/nvme0n1p6 -o subvol=@ /mnt
     mount /dev/nvme0n1p1 /mnt/boot/efi

    Hint: to find out proper patition names, you can use lsblk and lsblk -f commands.

  3. chroot to it

     arch-chroot /mnt
  4. Fix your problem!


Also see "10 use the power of arch-chroot when your computer crashes".

Remember the -o subvol=@ thingy to mount the proper subvol! Otherwise, you'll have to mount --bind /mnt/@ /mnt/@ before the second mount command (otherwise grub-install won't find root filesystem in /dev), and use proper path (/mnt/@ instead of /mnt) in the following commands
