Suggested repair: ______________________________________________________________

The default repair of the Boot-Repair utility will purge (in order to sign-grub) and reinstall the grub-efi of
sda2,
using the following options: sda1/boot/efi,
Additional repair will be performed: unhide-bootmenu-10s use-standard-efi-file

Final advice in case of suggested repair: ______________________________________

Please do not forget to make your UEFI firmware boot on the Parrot OS 4.11 (4.11) entry (sda1/efi//grub.efi (**** will be updated in the final message) file) !**

  • Screenshots:

use supergrub boot live cd,

https://www.supergrubdisk.org/super-grub2-disk/

boot your system, make sure the boot partitions got boot flag, then

repair grub with

sudo grub-mkconfig

sudo grub-install /dev/sda
