Grub Dual Boot in UEFI Windows 10

If you are booting in EUFI mode you need to install grub in UEFI mode.

First, install the packages grub and efibootmgr

GRUB is the bootloader and efibootmgr is used by the GRUB installation script to write boot entries for efi systems.

# pacman -S grub efibootmgr

Mount the efi file system partition, for example it is /dev/sda2

# mount /dev/sda2 /boot

Install Grub

# grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id=GRUB

If you are having Windows as dual boot you ll need to add windows in grub boot menu, for that you need to install os-prober

# pacman -S os-prober

Mount the file system where windows is installed, for example windows 10 is installed on /dev/sda3

# mkdir /mnt/windows10
# mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/windows10

Generate grub configuration file

# grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

 

Reboot system and you ll see grub bootloader with linux and windows boot entries.
