Quick Tip: Repair UEFI

Upon flashing a new image to my motherboard something went wrong. My UEFI boot entries were gone and thus I was not able to boot anymore. In order to fix this I manually added a boot entry again and here’s how to do it.

First boot any live Linux. I recommend a live image of the latest version of Ubuntu LTS for this purpose, but any live Linux will do.
Then recreate a UEFI boot entry like this:

# efibootmgr –create –disk /dev/sdx –part 1 –write-signature –loader /path/to/somelinux.efi –label “Some Linux” –verbose

You will now see the new boot order. You may want to change the boot order like so:

root@pc# efibootmgr -o 1,2,3
