[Solved]"boot-update" Error

Go to solution Solved by cardinal,



I am back at it again.

I have not been able to get grub to boot for me.
I reinstalled grub and made sure that I changed my grub.cfg to show the "genkernel".

However, when I run "boot-update" I get these errors:

# boot-update

boot-update 1.8.2 /
Copyright 2009-2017 Funtoo Technologies

[use option "-l" for license info, "-h" for help]

* Generating config for grub...

* NOTE: Detected UEFI boot. Configuring for UEFI booting.
* WARN: Image for section memtest86+ not found - /memtest86.bin
* WARN: No boot/default match found - using first boot entry by default.
* NOTE: Intel microcode will be loaded at boot-time.

* Completed successfully with warnings.

I have installed "sys-apps/memtest86+" and I still get the errors.

I thank you for the help.

#"memtest86+" {
#	type linux16
#	kernel /memtest86.bin

Type this command as root user and hit Enter on keyboard:
