In that case why would I need a separate partition (/dev/sda2 ext4 fs in my case which I had plans to use as /boot) which wouldn't ever be used.

Such a change might also be somewhat disruptive to users with BIOS and users with EFI who don't use gummiboot... I'm just > mystified. But, you might recheck gummiboot's requirements about where the kernel and initramfs need to be in relation to itself.I'm confused now. That is, if you mount the ESP at /boot and place the kernel at /boot/vmlinuz, then in gummiboot, the kernel would be \vmlinuz.Yeah, I figured this out based on the OP's
i dont mind pressing F12 and then going to gumiboot-> arch until 3.8 is out.If this isn't possible, can I install rEFInd without messing gummiboot? ESP mounted at /boot, whether it's a separate partion or not. I installed Arch on my new home server several days ago and I had similar experience with UEFI that you had. i didn't want to copy it here so I wrote it in small case - uuid.

Maybe both places get written at the same time in their respective format, I don't know for sure, I haven't tried. We hope to be able to follow this scheme.

The very fact that gummiboot didn't throw file not found error after changing the arch.conf, means that it is looking in the right directory as mentioned in the conf and it If its a seperate hard drive, it will most likely be sdb2. If its the same as windows, then whatever one its instlled on. Check This Out Now there seems to be another problem.
But when I select Arch, it gives me that error. The issue could be the firmware and kernel 3.7 series.Thank you, your explanations rock. @sidneyk - I read the wiki a couple of time and the gummiboot and other linked articles For instructions on how to use the content creation tools, see the video on the left.If you are an author/ contributor to Tek Syndicate, hi.

Unmount it from /boot or /boot/efi and then issue a mount command to mount it elsewhere (say, "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt"). The ESP will actually work fine for this. Random destruction (say, by a buggy OS installer) is more of an issue. No extra copying needed per the wiki.
