cannot grub-install

#1 Post by jozien64 » Sun Apr 08, 2018 9:45 pm

When I try to use as root "grub-install /dev/hda" , I get error:
"cannot find EFI Directory"
I tried ubuntu forum and I got:
"EFI is not in /etc/fstab"
how do I add EFI to /etc/fstab?

Can you try to use MX Boot Repair and report back if you get errors?

Ah, sorry, do you use MEPIS, I haven't noticed in what forum you posted.

You will not find it if you are using Mepis. If using MX it is in MX Tools. So what are you using? You did not answer Adrian's question.

There's a pretty good chance that MEPIS does not support EFI installs, either. Jozien's posting history would indicate MX 17.1, though.

What OS do you use? Where did you search for the program? Usually you can start typing in the menu, like this...
