    [ubuntu] Re: Using BootRepair tool in UEFI system

    Do not run Boot-Repair's auto fix.

    Did you first delete p2? It cannot move another partition to make room?

    Or did you have it mounted?
    You have to unmount before you can change it.

    In UEFI, if you remove a drive, it forgets the UEFI boot entry.
    You have to manually add it back in with efibootmgr.

    You have 7 grub2s.
    Each install has its own grub, but only one is the default boot at any one time.
