Double checked that, nope. Libreboot is supposed to use libreboot_grub.cfg and it isn't, so clearly, there is a problem with libreboot. Or grub.

Huh... that's weird. Running
Code:

sudo gdisk -l /dev/sda

says
Code:

MBR: not present, BSD: not present, APM: not present, GPT: not present. Creating new GPT entries in memory.

Disk /dev/sda: 447.1 GiB, 480103981056 bytes, 937703088 sectors
Disk model: Patriot Burst
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
maybe the problem is that fdisk or gdisk doesn't display disklabel type. How was the drive partition table created and partitioned
what does
Code:
parted -l
display

I followed exactly what the guide said to make my partitions, so refer to that. parted -l gives the following:

Code:
Error: /dev/sda: unrecognized disk lavel
Model: ATA Patriot Burst (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 480GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: unknown

Disk table unknown maybe what is causing the boot problems. I don't know what would be a good way to fix
