I never touch the esp partition. At least.. not anymore.

So to have a look in this mystic thingy, just naviagate to /boot/efi, in case
the latest installer was used.

Re: Multiple (4) SSD UEFI efi partition question

On most UEFI system one ESP (EFI System Partition) is enough. When the UEFI-menuentry is registered into the UEFI-"Bootmenu" the full path to the drive is stored.

Thanks guys!
Apparently, new partitions can't be mounted as long as GParted is still open. Once I closed it, all was good.

Re: Deleted kernels still in grub new ones not

If MX would be the only installed system update-grub generates menu entries for all kernel found within /boot. So perhaps check /boot. If other installed linux's provide the grub-menu, you either need to boot into the other linux and generate the grub menu there too, or alternatively make sure the c...

After creating a new partition
How did you do that and what filesystem you have formated the partition to?
The partition shall be visible in Thunar filemanager ready to mount.
Note: Gparted's "mount" is intentionally disabled :footinmouth:

It was very difficult to find there was a difference.
It's just two or three clicks on their website:

You select the option to make the new LiveUSB writeable, then you boot THAT LiveUSB and use the "remaster and persistence" tool to make root and home persistent.
