Summary0000110: Fresh install - do all updates - reboot - BIOS does not find OS - no grub
DescriptionFresh install of AlmaLinux will not boot after updates - BIOS message about no bootable device or operating system.

You do not even get to grub menu showing kernels. Been running AlamaLinux for few months on this server and was just doing updates and killed it. I reinstalled again and did a yum update and it broke again, exact same way, so it is reproducible.

Not sure what is killing it, I assume a grub problem. I found https://www.reddit.com/r/CentOS/comments/i0ozrs/cant_boot_in_after_latest_kernel_update_for/ 3 which seems similar, but 11 months ago, so we tried it - and I get same problem user Joeg1484 got. Gave up and just not going to install updates.
Steps To Reproduce1. Install AlmaLinux
2. Update all packages (coming from CentOS so I been using yum)
3. Reboot

Hello.
Are you in BIOS or UEFI mode? Is Secure Boot enabled?
What version I should install to reproduce update bug 8.3 or 8.4?

UEFI mode. Secure boot is not enabled. 8.4 was the version.

I verified just to make sure I was not incorrect about the above:
