NO, NOT WITH THAT OS WHOSE NAME I WILL NOT MENTION!

Hi All,

I have an SSD drive I put in a USB 3.1 carrier with Fedora 27 installed on it. I use it to troubleshoot Windows machines mainly. (It is all tricked out with a bunch of nice diagnostics and such.)

The drive shows up in bios setup twice. Once as a regular USB drive and a second time as a EUFI USB drive.

Problem: it will only boot from EUFI. I have to use something else on motherboards that don't support EUFI.

I do notice that there is a zero length /boot/grub2/grub.cfg file. The populated grub.cfg resides over on /boot/efi/EFI/fedora

Now I know Live USB drives supports both. It there a way to get my drive to also support dual booting from both standard bios and EUFI?

Many thanks, -T
