    Default Can't boot any installed Linux (HP Revolve 810 G3, 1.14 Bios)/ EFI problem

    Hi there,

    I've bought a used HP Elitebook Revolve 810 G3 (Broadwell). I tried several LInux distros as live CD and they work fine.
    Then I installed OpenSuse Leap 42.3 (M.2 SATA SSD). The first boot (!) went fine. I installed all the latest updates (including the latest Kernel) and then my system wouldn't boot anymore with the following error:
    Secure boot and fast boot are both turned off.

    System BootOrder not found. Initializing defaults.
    Reset System.
    With Fedora it wouldn't even boot directly after install. At least OpenSuse managed once ;-)

    Apparently it has something to do with HP's EFI implementation. I can set a "custom boot" and specify a boot path but I don't know how to find that out and how to input it the right way.

    Help is much appreciated :-)

    Thanks.

    Hi
    You can see from the output of efibootmgr command...

    For example on this HP 255 G4 (It's been a while, but think I manually set for this system);
    Code:
    efibootmgr -v
    BootCurrent: 0000
    Timeout: 0 seconds
    BootOrder: 0000,3000,0003,2001,2002,2003
    Boot0000* opensuse-secureboot    HD(1,GPT,742be473-8d73-4979-a91f-eb7d97331465,0x800,0x82000)/File(\EFI\opensuse\shim.efi)
    Boot0003* openSUSE    HD(1,GPT,742be473-8d73-4979-a91f-eb7d97331465,0x800,0x82000)/File(\EFI\opensuse\grubx64.efi)RC
    Boot2001* USB Drive (UEFI)    RC
    So the path is \EFI\opensuse\shim.efi or /EFI/opensuse/shim.efi for secure boot... It may not want the leading / or \

    Thanks for your answer. Just a stupid question to ask, where do I run this command? I'm locked in a boot loop.

    Thanks again

    Hi
    If you press the F9 key at boot you should be able to select - browse to
    the efi file to boot?

    The efi command is run when in openSUSE as root user. But if it
    installed ok, it will be in the same place as my example.
