Grub2 does not boot with GPT
On my new computer, the OS is installed correctly, but grub2 will not boot. The only way to boot the system is with the Super Grub2 Live CD.
I'm setting up a new system. The HDD was clean, and there was no OS or other software installed.
The computer uses UEFI firmware instead of traditional BIOS. I partitioned the hard drive using GPT instead of the traditional MBR partitioning scheme.
I intend to make an OS-independent, dedicated grub2 partition. I thought it might be easier, though, to just install my first distro in the normal way, and then create the grub2 partition later.
I did my partitioning with the GParted Live CD. Then, the first distro I attempted to install was Ubuntu 12.04.
The relevant partitions are:
The computer will not boot from the hard drive. However, if I boot from the Super Grub2 LiveCD, the disc can detect Ubuntu and successfully boot it. The Super Grub2 CD is not detecting any grub installations. It is detecting a grub.cfg file on sda3.
Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this?
Thanks for any help anyone can give me!
Ummm … never mind.
