[Solved]"boot-update" Error

Question

Hello,

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.

Open /etc/boot.conf as root user in a text editor.

Change:

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

To:

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

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

boot-update

Okay.
I ran genkernel and "ego-sync", then reinstall grub, with no errors, fallowed by "boot-update", and now I only have one error:

* WARN: Image for section memtest86+ not found - /memtest86.bin

So I guess that makes it a little easier.
