I need to rescue an unbootable UEFI Fedora 26 system.

I have booted from the DVD, and used the rescue choot environment. I have a GPT disk with a small FAT32 ESP partition of type EF00.

I've run:

dnf reinstall grub2-efi grub2-efi-modules shim
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

as described here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/GRUB_2

The grub.cfg file looks plausible. The system boot menu shows a "Fedora" entry, but it is not actually bootable.

What else do I need to do?

How exactly is it failing at boot? Maybe initramfs image or linux image are missing (ones referred in the grub as linuxefi and initrdefi)

Where did you run these commands? Have you chroot'ed to the installed Fedora system before running them?
