Today trying to help a user (Manjaro Architect GRUB error - #9 by karanj), I tried Manjaro Architect in a VM. I noticed that mount dialogs can be a little misleading when using UEFI.
The order in mount dialogs is:
- Root partition
But I think that EFI should come before the “others”, because some users may think that EFI partition should be mounted that third step. If EFI is mounted in that step, the EFI dialog is not showed, but later grub does not install properly and the error of the linked topic can show up.
I have to admit that just that happen to me the first time I tried.
Here is the “others” step of mount dialogs:
As I said, I think it’s a little misleading and just a change of order can save some users from a headache
