Dual boot efi problems need a little help
Long story short it seems I have a Lenovo H50 computer that is locked to windows.
After installing manjaro I have to boot with the usb and select the correct efi to boot into manjaro.
After some googleing it seems Lenevo will only accect the /boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi file.
Seems the only thing that works is moving the windows boot file out of the directory and replacing it with the one from Manjaro.
sudo cp /boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi /boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/bootmgfw.efi sudo cp /boot/grub/x86_64-efi/core.efi /boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi
Now my questions are.
If windows updates does the /boot/efi partition get altered or erased? Should the repair be just boot the Manjaro usb installer select manjaro efi off boot menu and run above commands again.
How ofter would I have to replace this file? Updated kernel drivers, any kind of major Manjaro update, after anything requiring grub-install?
Sorry I am not sure of what info is included in an efi file.
What are the steps to repair the damange if windows deletes the /boot/efi/boot and /boot/efi/Manjaor directories.
This is my main concern here being able to easily recover if the /boot/efi partition is altered by Windows or something in Manjaro needs the bootmgfw.efi updated
Does the wiki https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Restore_the_GRUB_Bootloader#Identify_and_Prepare_the_Installed_Partition.28s.29 basically what I need to do?
Am I anywhere near close in solving this or should I just give up on dual booting this system. Windows is needed unfortunately.
