Summary0016569: grub2-mkconfig is taking fedora path instead of centos while installing centos7 via kickstart file and in UEFI mode Post by bhar
DescriptionHi All,

I am trying to install centos7 ISO using kickstart and ISO installation is working fine but as post installation setup procedure getting error when installing Bootloader.

Basically getting below error
BootLoaderError: failed to write boot loader configuration

Log shows,

efibootmgr -c -w -L CentOS 7 -d /dev/sda -p 1 -l \EFI\fedora\shimx64.efi
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
/sbin/grub2-mkconfig : line 244: /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/ No such file or directory

Any pointers why it is taking fedora inside the efibootmgr path and grub-mkconfig path. It should take centos instead of fedora.
I already checked that there is directory of centos at path /boot/efi/EFI/centos/

Thanks in advance.

You forgot to mention the vital fact that you have remastered our iso before reporting this. That is not supported and if you do it and get errors then you get to fix them too. If you can recreate this on a CentOS system using a CentOS supplied iso image, then you can raise a bug here.
