Are you installing in BIOS or in UEFI mode?
I don't know, to be honest. And I'm some 25 km's away from the system in question, so it's not easy to tell right now.
I'm confused because this message happens when using BIOS mode, but I see later that you have the /boot/efi partiton.
If you are installing in BIOS mode, then you need that BIOS boot partition, or if not, make sure that:
MBR contains generic boot code System boots from root partition Root partition is flagged bootable.
Therefore, AND not knowing what the installer wanted, I decided to continue.
But this time the installation itself went smoothly, but left me with an unbootable system: there is no valid partition found to boot from.
The partitions on the disk are:
/dev/sda1 4.00 GiB Swap on Swap /dev/sda2 50.00 GiB BtrFS on / /dev/sda3 0.86TiB XFS on /home /dev/sda4 1.00 GiB FAT on /boot/efi
sda4 is too big, 500M is enough. Why you have it is a mystery, anyway.
I wouldn't know either, I got the system presented as is. Should I delete it?
Why did the system boot on 42.3, and refuses it to boot from 15.2?
We don't know how your 42.3 was installed.
Here again, I don't really know. Must be way back.
More important, what can I do to make the system boot? Preferably without touching /home...
First find out: BIOS or UEFI?
To find that out, I have to boot with a live "CD" I suppose? KDE or Rescue?
