What does |*| represent in the bios boot order menu?

What does |*| represent in the bios boot order menu? Should it come before or after Manjaro in the boot order?

man efibootmgr

See the EXAMPLES section

I can’t undestand, giving:

‘sudo efibootmgr’

It shows the same entries, with a final difference:

  1. …\shim.efi) File(…)
  2. …\shimx64.efi)

By the way, I don’t remember if after installation I changed the order.

Use the man page as instructed

According to the above you are running an unsupported version of Manjaro.

I’m really sorry, I’m wrong. Fedora is installed on the same disk. I installed Fedora first, when secure boot was active. So now it makes sense. But the question remains as to which is the correct order.

That depends on your system, I’d say. If you only boot to Manjaro, then you can just as well put it first.

The same with Fedora.

It depends on you. I only have Manjaro installed, and here’s mine:

$ efibootmgr
BootCurrent: 0000
Timeout: 1 seconds
BootOrder: 0000,0004
Boot0000* manjaro       HD(3,GPT,0653a05b-0f22-f64c-a283-7cc0dcb83551,0x800,0xfa000)/File(\EFI\MANJARO\GRUBX64.EFI)
Boot0004* UEFI OS       HD(3,GPT,0653a05b-0f22-f64c-a283-7cc0dcb83551,0x800,0xfa000)/File(\EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI)0000424f

Hope it helps!
