I'm trying to do a minimal install of Fedora on my PC in UEFI mode alongside Windows 10.

Everything is fine in the installer, but after it finishes and I reboot my pc, the entry for Fedora in GRUB is missing. Windows has an entry and works perfectly fine.

After a little investigation, I noticed that there is no vmlinuz in /boot ( initramfs image is there ). I tried copying the kernel image from the netinstall USB and running grub2-mkconfig from chroot. Once I do that, Fedora appears in GRUB and it seems to boot, but then systemd runs into problems, something about /etc/machine-id.

This happened to me also. Another user had the same problem with the server netinstall, except he couldn't boot at all not having a Windows installation ready to rely on (I was left with an entry for Windows as well, but I didn't bother to understand what was going on and ended up installing Fedora from the MATE Live iso). If you can give more details then I'd suggest to file a bug-report.
