For anybody who doesn't know how to do that. Here follows a short description of the steps to take to restore boot with a SolydXK live session:

Mount root partition:

Code: Select all

$ live-chroot /dev/sda2
In chroot: compare mounted partitions in fstab and blkid to get /boot partition(s)

Code: Select all

# cat /etc/fstab
# sudo blkid
In my case I have a separate /boot and /boot/efi partition:

Code: Select all

# mount /dev/sda4 /boot
# mount /dev/sda1 /boot/efi
Install Grub2:

Code: Select all

# grub-install /dev/sda
Ignore the "GUID Partition Table Header signature" errors. You're in a chrooted session. The last line matters, though: "Installation finished. No error reported."

Update Grub2:

Code: Select all

# update-grub
Unmount /boot partition(s) and exit.

Code: Select all

# umount /boot/efi /boot
# exit
Now, reboot and cross your fingers.

That tip was excellent.
It will serve so that other users can solve the same problem.
It would be nice if you could put the topic as Solved.
