Bug ID: 1043762
Summary: efibootmgr openSUSE entry missing, no boot after
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: x86-64
OS: Linux
Status: NEW
Severity: Critical
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Bootloader

I had to circumvent this problem by installing Leap and upgrading to
Tumbleweed. I messed up my Tumbleweed system and did a fresh install a couple
days ago. The installation went fine, but on first boot I got the message
"error: not a valid root device". I tried reinstalling, redownloading the iso,
using the net iso instead of the KDE iso to no avail.

I was able to boot by using the ISO and going to More> Boot Linux System. I
used the command efibootmgr to check my UEFI entries, and openSUSE wasn't
there. I thought I found the solution and simply added the opensuse entry. But
it still didn't work because the entry didn't persist on reboot. I booted
manually using Boot Linux System and the entry was gone. I think that means it
didn't update NVRAM?
