Re: UEFI installation upload4 with LVM and crypt

Hello Steve,
Yes, the first part is after the install, the modules are on the disk, they just aren't populated into the grub.cfg. The load_video function not being used is a bit beyond my understanding, the function is listed, but I don't know where/how it would be called, so I just insmoded them inline.

Thanks for your work, good stuff other than those couple of inconvieniences.

Hi Ryan,

The grub installer misses some modules that are required for LVM
Crypt with UEFI, I had to add:
insmod efi_gop
insmod efi_uga
(those two are in the load_video function, but it isn't called as far
as I can tell since I couldn't boot without it.)
insmod gcry_twofish
insmod gcry_sha256
insmod part_gtp
insmod lvm

Right. To confirm: this is after you've installed things and are
trying to boot the newly-installed system?

The fact that your "BIOS" setting has to be set to use UEFI if it is
a dual system isn't mentioned.  The first time that I setup my
machine I had it on BIOS, and the installed worked fine, I changed to
UEFI and reinstalled after I broke the system trying to convert after
the install.

OK... Sorry, that could be clearer. It also depends heavily on the
particular system as to what it will try first by default from EFI and
BIOS. :-(
