I have the ability to set the order of the drives, and CD is not selected as first. When I go into BIOS, I can hit a "Boot Menu" option, which is a list all possible drives. Kind of a quick overide list to the normal boot priority list. Any that have the ability to boot with UEFI, are listed twice, once with UEFI at the beginning of the menu selection, and listed again without UEFI.
For some reason, the drive that has been available up until now with the option to boot with UEFI, no longer shows up twice in the list.
That also goes, that I can't re-order the boot priority and select the drive I want with UEFI, as it isn't even in the list to choose from.
Without being able to select the correct drive that is supposed to be listed as UEFI, I can't get to the bootloader (which the term bootloader is about as much as I know in that direction).
I need someone with experience with UEFI bootloaders, and how to correct them.
I did make some progress in my learning yesterday...
In the last paragraph, he suggests I run "boot info script". And then go to the forums and post the results in hopes someone can see something and steer me in the right direction.
The rest discusses problems when setting up or installing with UEFI/Grub/Grub2 and Secure Boot. I had no problems until yesterday, and this server has been running smoothly for several months.
So, here is the output, .... I had to attach it, file is 13,000 characters too long (I have a lot of hardrives... )
There is a lot of info in there that is irrelevant, but specifically I wanted to mention that /dev/sdg is my SSD, which is NOT currently in use. The partitions on it have not been deleted, as I wanted to be able to refer back to some of my old config files on it.
It does not get mounted at boot, and non of the boot-loader stuff listed on it is in use. I know I was booting from sda, as at one point I had sdg disconnected and still booted up without a problem.
Off for lunch, I'll check back.
Thanks again everyone.
