Upgrading mother board

#1 Post by Tupeelo »

I want to upgrade my mobo due to a bad ram slot. Will I have to change the uefi boot partition, or even do a whole new install. My system runs well on 4 gigs but I have another stick I want to use.

You'll need to make new NVRAM boot entries. Or run this command before changing:

Code: Select all

# grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --removable
^ That will copy GRUB's .efi loader to the ESP at EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI, which should boot automatically even without any boot entries.

Sorry to bother you again,

Any recommendations on a reliable PCIe wifi card ? most sites recommend TP-link. I don't care if it is 2 or 3 g.


Thanks.
