HELP: MX Boot Repair


  • Boot to the LiveMedium and click Start Menu ≻ System ≻ MX Boot Repair and select the appropriate option.
  • GRUB
    • Reinstall a new bootloader. (UEFI support except in MX14)
    • Repair the bootloader by regenerating the GRUB configuration file (grub.cfg). This is the most common use of this application, turned to when it is not possible to boot into any partition where the user could run:
    • update-grub
  • Boot block: WARNING: for legacy boot systems that rely on Bios instead of UEFI only!
    • Backup the boot block, either master (MBR) or partition (PBR).
    • Restore a boot block previously backed up.

  1. Is it possible to set a grub password on a MX-19 live (w persistence)?
    After setting username and password in /etc/grub.d/40_custom grub-mkconfig gives a “failed to get canonical path of overlay” error and MX Boot Repair is complaining about setting up chroot environment.
    Thx in advance
