How to restore SLES/openSUSE LVM(UEFI)


The system boot after restoring image in LVM environment on openSUSE or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server/Desktop (UEFI) fails in GRUB error.


1) Boot up the system in AIPBE (Linux-based boot media)

2) Go to [Utilities] – [Local Mount] in boot environment and mount [/] in LVM.
* In case of SUSE LVM: [/] is mounted in “/mnt/system-root” folder.

3) Mount EFI partition and three directories in terminal.

# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/system-root/boot/efi
# mount --bind /dev /mnt/system-root/dev
# mount --bind /proc /mnt/system-root/proc
# mount --bind /sys /mnt/system-root/sys

4) Change [/] on terminal to “/mnt/system-root”.

# chroot /mnt/system-root

5) Run the following command under chroot.

# grub2-install
* If there already exists an entry, "efibootmgr" error will be displayed but please ignore the error.
# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
* Please make sure [Done] is indicated at the end of command execution result, which means recovery process has completed.

6) Boot up the system.
