EFI System Partition missing files, Repair Disk won't boot

  1. #41


    I rebooted to Linux Mint and in GParted I see a file on /sd3 that says unknown. It is 128 mb in size. Could this be the file?

    It should be a partition with the flag "boot".
    File system should be fat32. It might be mounted in linux mint at /boot/efi.

    The only file I see with boot flag is fat32. The file I said earlier has to be the one even though it says unknown. GParted is not showing a /boot/efi so I think that is it it. It is on a partition.

    Can you mount it with
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /mnt/efi
    sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/efi
    ?

    It says I must specify filesystem type.

    Your /dev/sda3 has no filesystem, strangely enough. I'm not sure what's going on there. /dev/sda1 is the EFI system partition. Mount it using the same command (obviously change to /dev/sda1).

    Days mount point efi does not exist. I guess I'm not smart enough to do what you are asking. Maybe someone with some smarts will step in.
