Hi,

Just tried to boot the last PVE iso 8.1.1, but it gets stuck directly, displaying:
grub
error file /EFI/ not found

iso 8.0.2 boots fine...
 
Is secure boot enabled/disabled or do you boot legacy ?
 
Is secure boot enabled/disabled or do you boot legacy ?
Is the bootloader/kernel signed in 8.1? secure boot possible with 8.1?

Because as far i now, secure boot is only for VM's on 8.1 but not for the host, but "Raspberry Pi Cloud" on youtube indicates that the host supports now secure booting...

Cheers
 
Yes.


No, that has been possible for years.
You can secureboot the host, lol.
i just enabled secure boot on the host and it cannot boot here. Maybe i have to recreate/reinitialize the grub2 partition, going to try now.

Thx for the clarification!
 
It took time to answer, sorry, yes the iso was not corrupt, re-downloaded
Tried on a host server at a cloud provider while in rescue mode, as usual, I used qemu-system-x86_64 (unsure about the version) with ovmf bios. This was reproducible on a second server, but maybe qemu was not up to date. Will try to use the latest debian release
 
Definitively related to QEMU... Installing version 7 allows booting without any trouble, sorry, I did not check this...
QEMU emulator version 7.2.5 (Debian 1:7.2+dfsg-7+deb12u2)

Hi. had the same problem and think i found a baypass off the truble by entering proxmox gui and select "proxmox install boot grub2" and hit 'e' on keyboard for text editing grub script. Whit out doing eny real editing i hit F10, then it boots like it should. Some how it looks like when you hitting the selection direct it bypassing the bootscript?
