    Hello,

    I have a fresh install of Proxmox VE 5.0 and made a vzdump of a virtual machine from a Proxmox VE 4.4. When using qmrestore to restore the vzdump from PVE 4.4 to PVE 5.0 the vm does no longer boot. After starting it drops into the UEFI interactive shell. When exiting the shell and looking at the boot manager there is no disk I could choose to boot from.

    How would I restore the boot order/configuration so I can boot this VM again? Googling some time did not give me an answer to this question.

    Thank you very much!

    Best regards,
    Daniel

    I solved above problem. When the interactive shell starts there will be a mapping list where you see something like "FS0".

    > FS0:
    gets you into a file system where you may find a directory called EFI (in my case)

    > cd EFI
    gets you into the folder

    > cd debian
    (in my case) gets you into a folder where you find a file (in my case called grubx64.efi)

    > grubx64.efi
    executes the efi file and your system should boot up

    When the system is booted, login and execute grub-install /dev/DEVICE, replace DEVICE with the hard disk device name and the vm should boot up automatically as always.

    I hope I could help someone with this!

    Best regards,
    Daniel
