Where is the default loader looking for it?

You can try searching in the GRUB.EFI file / GRUB file or place appropriate grub.cfg next to grub.efi
It is more correct to reinstate the loader with the Grub-Install command (perhaps, the spiny --target = i386-EFI will be required and something else, in the 15th year distribution, Grub2 is hardly the most recent).

A guide to installing and configuring linux on UEFI 32bit

Attached Image

Installing Linux
Sick up the overall procedure. Some little things (how to work with gparted, for example) and explanations (it is assumed that you know what Linux is) I will omit, as they can change from the installation to the installation and goes out elementary. In principle, the instructions are suitable for all Intel Baytrail tablets.
  1. So, on the table lie: a laptop, a flash drive in 2GB and the tablet itself.
  2. First you need to decide on the choice of the distribution. In the spring I wanted mint (Linux Mint). It was downloaded: 18.3 Sylvia (CINNAMON as DE) of both digits - x32 and x64.
  3. Now let's see what to deal with. Google, find out that the bootloader at the tabletUEFI X32. There is no opportunity to work in BIOS and / or X64 mode. At the same time The processor is 64-bit . On the way, we learn what to get to UEFI, you just need to press the ESC during loading (well, it was obvious).
  4. To install Linux, you need to start it to start. Scroll with Rufus (RUFUS program) on the flash drive Linux Mint X64 image.
  5. Now we need the right GRUB2 (it is logical that Grub X64 will not start). In any way, we get the file bootia32.efi (you can pull out from X32 MINT, you can takefrom here) and throw on the flash drive on the way / EFI / Boot
    Attached Image

  6. I remove the flash drive, turn off the tablet, stick the flash drive to the plane. Turn on the plan, click ESC, we fall in the download menu.
  7. We choose our flash drive as a device for download (called this "Select Boot Device").
  8. If everything is done correctly, a black and white menu appears with the title of "Grub 2 ^ Beta 2". If nothing like has not appeared - something went wrong and you need to think and / or google.
  9. Select the first item - Run MINT in Live mode. We wait until it starts. If everything is fine - the desktop will appear with beautiful wallpaper and several icons on the left edge. Icons: Computer, ... (volumes of windows such as Windows, Data, Recovery),Install Mint.. If something went wrong - to think or google yourself (in the future, I will not repeat this promotion).
  10. There was a problem - the screen is turned vertically, and the tablet is put horizontally into the keyboard. Deploy the screen clockwise (Clockwise) through the Display program.
    Attached Image

  11. Go to the installation of the system into the internal memory - we remove everything from the disk, create partitions.
  12. I'm not sure that it is necessary, but I recommend the first 256MB to allocate under the loader section - I do not remember exactly, but in the creation menu you need to select the EFI FS type. We notice thatSections wear View / Dev / MMCBLKXPY names (See Screenshot).
  13. On devices with 1GB RAM and I recommend creating less and connect (Swapon in the context menu Gparted) SWAP-sectionbefore Starting installation. (Cm. LINUX on UEFI 32bit (Post RussianNeuroMancer # 75637143)
  14. The rest of the installation completely repeats the installation of the system to a normal computer.
    Attached Image

    Attention! The system installer may break at the GRUB-A installation phase. Then you need to restart the installer in the GRUB setting mode, and then install it manually (see Spoilers "Installing a GRUB-A Communication" and "Installing Manual Manual" below).
  15. Actually, this installation is completed.
Installing the GRUB-A System
Danar: Installation breaks when you try to install GRUB, since it does not assume that the user has only MMC memory (no / dev / sda and others).

In this case, we will install GRUB yourself.
  1. You need to start the system setting with the GRUB setting (google Skip Grub Install Linux Mint).
  2. But we will not reboot yet, otherwise you have to boot from the flash drive again - the bootloader has not yet been installed. We will correct this problem - copy the Boot / and EFI folders / from the flash drive root to the loader section (I can mount it if necessary) - in my case of the mount point (Mount Point) there was a folder / boot / efi, to open on behalf of the root. By way, remove the 64-bit EFI bootloader. Explanation: In the future, UEFI can decide that you first need to run Bootia64, which will not allow you to download the system and falls into the GRUB Rescue. If the loader we have only one, there is no such ambiguity.
    Attached Image

    Note: If there is access to the Internet on the device, you can immediately go to the spoiler "Installing GRUB manually".
  3. Turn off the tablet, remove the flash drive. Run the tablet. If everything is right, then ... we will see all the same black and white menu Grub. This is normal - we have not yet ruled the config. Explanation: Due to the exotic installation, the configuration of the Grab cannot be - programs or write configs to some left place, or break (as the system installer has done).
  4. (This item will also help if suddenly fall out in Grub Yes). Click the 'C' button to exit the Grab Console and find out how the section with the installed system is called:
    • Ls - to get a list of all sections
    • Ls (HD0.5) / - To view the contents of the section. I think you can identify Linux yourself

    In my case, the system is on (HD0.5). Accordingly, we write to the console and remember on the sheet / in a notebook on a laptop (do not forget to change the values ​​(HD0,5) and / dev / mmcblk1p5 to your own):
    SET ROOT = (HD0,5)
    Linux /Boot/vmlinuz-4.10.0-38-Generic root = / dev / mmcblk1p5
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-4.10.0-38-generic

    Tip: There is an auto-step - it is enough to dial / boot / vmlin or / boot / initrd and press Tab.
    Explanation: With these commands, we load the system manually: first the kernel (Linux command), then everything else (initrd).
  5. If everything is correct, the log lines will run on the screen. If everything is completely good, the system will fully load.
  6. Edit /Boot/Grub/Grub.cfg in the download section: I will replace the four blocks "MENUENTRY ... {...}" one following:
    SET ROOT = (HD0,5)
    Linux /Boot/vmlinuz-4.10.0-38-Generic root = / dev / mmcblk1p5
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-4.10.0-38-generic

    Obviously. What these commands coincide with the early manually scored (only the BOOT team is missing) and do the same.
  7. If everything is correct, then when you reboot, there will be only one item in GRUB-E: "RUN Linux Mint (4.10)"
  8. Select it from the keyboard, waiting for the system boot, and then go to the next spoiler - "Installing GRUB manually"

Installing grub manually
Explanation: If initially the ram was installed manually (so that the system is simply able to boot), it should be reinstalling it by the system forces to avoid mistakes and facilitate life when installing a new kernel.
Important : At this stage, Internet access will be available. If it is not - see fixes.
  1. Remove the old Grab:
    sudo rm -r / boot / efi / *
    sudo rm -r / boot / grub
  2. Unpack the fileAttached KB)
    along the path / usr / lib / grub by any convenient way;
  3. sudo apt-get install grub2
  4. sudo grub-install --target = i386-efi --removable
  5. sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
  6. sudo update-grub
This item was created with the support of3D VIRUS, for which he thanks a lot!

Fixes, adjusting the system to mind
It does not work wi-fi
In old versions of the kernel (probably<15.0) Wi-Fi broken. Options Consider two - put a new core from the cap (see spoiler "it would be necessary to be the kernel one") or roll a patch.

How to roll a patch:
  1. We go to Google, find out the model of the card (RTL8723BS) and find a repository with a patch (
  2. BecauseThe Forum Minta reportedOn the successful work of the driver in ~ October 2017, killingThat's hereAnd swing a patch.
  3. Using flash drives to be transferred to the tablet desktop, unpack, then open the folder in the terminal (Open in Terminal in the context menu) and the final:
    sudo make
    sudo make install
    sudo reboot

  4. If everything is fine, the Wi-Fi icon in the lower right corner will appear after the reboot.
Wi-Fi runs unstable
Attention: No one can guarantee that this decision at least somehow relates to your problem. Act with the mind. If you doubt - google and ask forum.

Tip from respectedDDA (@):
DDA (@) @ 01/27/17, 20:14*
Disconnect the energy saving of the card itself and the tire on which it hangs. Most likely it is MMC through the SDHCI-ACPI driver

You can make it a script (do not forget to verify that the equipment codes in the script coincide with your equipment codes):
#! / bin / sh
# Wifi
echo "on">/ SYS / BUS / Platform / Drivers / SDHCI-ACPI / INT33BB: 00 / POWER / CONTROL
# Emmc.
echo "on">/ SYS / BUS / Platform / DRIVERS / SDHCI-ACPI / 80860F14: 00 / Power / Control
# MicroSd.
echo "on">/ SYS / BUS / Platform / DRIVERS / SDHCI-ACPI / 80860F14: 01 / POWER / CONTROL

It would be necessary nucleus today
  1. Swingingfrom the cap ;
    Note : As of June 20128, the kernel downloaded directly from does not contain the necessary patches, so it will work crooked. For this reason I I do not recommend Update the kernel using any programs (whether the Mint'a or UKUU update system itself) itself.
  2. Extract;
  3. Go to the folder with .deb files of the kernel;
  4. We perform "sudo dpkg -i * .deb";
  5. Reboot and Voila - the kernel is updated!

Note : Do not forget that the kernel also takes place on the disk. One nucleus weighs about 0.3 gigabytes. If it is critical for you (especially if the cores are somewhat), then the old kernels can be deleted by the following commands (xx - kernel number):
Sudo Apt-Get Purge Linux-Image-XX *
Sudo Apt-Get Purge Linux-Headers-XX *
No sound
Note : You may need to also put the kernel version 4.13 and the newer.
Note : There is an alternative instruction (if for some reason the option is not suitable): IRBIS TW36 - Discussion (post ilya213639 # 72968959)
  1. Swinging
  2. Unpack in / usr / share / alsa / ucm (i.e., in the UCM folder, folders from the archive with the names of the BYTCR-RT5640 view)
  3. To file ~ / .config / pulse / daemon.conf add (change if available)
    realtime-scheduling = no

  4. Reboot
  5. Select "Mono Speaker Playback" as an output device
Not working bluetooth
Instructions for device owners with RTL8723BS.
Note : The kernel is needed version 4.12 or newer. For 4.17+, these steps can be skipped - see the bottom of the spoiler.
Note : Please note that WiFi and Bluetooth are in the same module and work in close frequencies. Do not be surprised that the actively working Bluetooth is shuffling WiFi and vice versa.
  1. Swing patch S.githaba
    Note: It is also useful to read Readme at the bottom of the page.
  2. Unpacking
  3. We carry out
    sudo make install

  4. Run a Bluetooth team
    sudo ./

  5. (Optional) We register the line above in the autorun through Cron:
    sudo crontab -e
    In the opened editor, add a line
    @reboot /path/to/script/

For nuclei 4.17+:
Linux on the UEFI 32bit (post in hand. # 74050671)
Auto rotate
Note : There is an alternative instruction (if for some reason the option is not suitable): IRBIS TW36 - Discussion (post ilya213639 # 72968959)

Hands have not yet reached. I see two options:
  1. Change Cinnamon on GNOME
  2. Write a script for auto show

At the moment, a script is supplied in the bus station, which turns the ERAN and the touch of horizontal mode:
#! / bin / sh
xrandr -o right
XInPut Set-Prop "Pointer: Goodix Capacitive Touchscreen" --Type = Float "Coordinate Transformation Matrix" 0 1 0 -1 0 1 0 0 1

Attention : "Pointer: Goodinx Capacitive Touchscreen" must be replaced with the name of your tache. Name Tacha You can watch typing in the "Xinput" console.
Battery shows an allegedly incorrect level of charge
This may be a sign of anything. Fair. You can try to start with simple - discharge the battery "to zero", and then fully charge (the so-called "full charging cycle"). See here: Linux on UEFI 32bit (PRESSER PRESENTER # 75314572)
