DescriptionThe last couple of days when running the - curl -O, on an Intel i7 NUC using a Samsung EVO or a Samsung PRO 4TB SSD, configured for UEFI boot (Secure boot disabled), after reboot, the server cannot find the boot drive.

If I install AlmaLinux from scratch, it boots fine.

Today's now creates a "System setup" boot menu that runs "fwsetup" which then brings up the server's BIOS configuration.
Steps To ReproduceInstall a vanilla CentOS v8.3 on a server that is using UEFI to boot a 4TB SSD, run the latest and reboot.
TagsNo tags attached.

The "System setup" boot menu that runs "fwsetup" which then brings up the server's BIOS configuration seems to be a result of left-over UEFI partitions from testing this over and over again. I have cleaned them up and am back to the UEFI/EFI bits not carrying over after deploy.

I did notice that if I press F10 to select devices that the computer can boot from, I have a listing for "CentOS Linux" where if I had installed AlmaLinux from scratch, I should see "AlmaLinux" instead. Is it possible that the boot menu is broken or was not migrated correctly?

Looks like the latest has fixed the issue with UEFI. It worked on a test system I have.

Thanks for the link alukoshko.
