Bootloader has not verified loaded image. System is compromised. Halting.

"Bootloader has not verified loaded image. System is compromised. Halting." after F20 update.

EFI multiboot F20 and Ubuntu.

I tried

Code:
yum reinstall grub2-efi shim
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
from F20

and

Code:
sudo grub-install /dev/sda
sudo grub-install --recheck /dev/sda
sudo update-grub
from Ubuntu.

but it didn't help.

efibootmgr (F20):

Code:
BootCurrent: 0003

BootOrder: 0025,0003,0024,0002,0001,0000

Re: Bootloader has not verified loaded image. System is compromised. Halting.

Did you try disabling Secure Boot in the firmware settings?

Re: Bootloader has not verified loaded image. System is compromised. Halting.

@ Ahmad Samir: Most likely. +1
@ boycottsystemd: You certainly have to erease some entries ASAP before rebooting any more again!
Just the beginning of this year, i've filled up the NVR ram (which is not seen by efibootmgr) since upon every boot, a new entry was created.
Thats just what it looks like you have now too.
I didnt care of it, and ended up turning in my laptop to the local vendor (not the shop) service center, and had to pay 80 CHF to get them reset it.
It would have been an additional 160 CHF if they'd reinstall Windows for me too.

Since i did the changes, there was no warranty.
So erease some of the higher numbered entries.
(once the nvr ram was filled, i could not boot at all, really stuck prior to the vendor logo/bios entry even shows, not even off usb/dvd of Windows Recovery media!)

As root you can run:
Code:
for n in 000{A..Z} 00{1..2}{0..9}
do 
   efibootmgr -b $n -B $n  
done
Do you have a GPT partition -> a bios_boot partition?
It should have the size of 1-4mb and could be 'anywhere' on the disk.
It is NOT mountable - viewable, as in, it is not listed in /dev/sd[a-z].

If none exists, and if you have 1 mb spare, create a bios_boot partition.
Then try reinstall grub.

Hope this helps

EDIT:

Ah yes, you cannot install an(y) OS in non-secure boot and enable secure boot afterwards.
Not one OS will boot.

You have to disable secure boot again in order to boot the OS.

Thank you, I've erased some entries after posting this question and now again because new and new are still being created.

Yes, it's GPT partition. I've created bios_boot partition, reinstalled grub2 but it didn't help.

Re: Bootloader has not verified loaded image. System is compromised. Halting.

I've tried
Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
and Ubuntu has been added to boot menu but Ubuntu still can't boot:

Code:
error: can't find command `linux'
error: can't find command `initrd'
Does anyone know how to fix it ?

Those commands, 'linux' and 'initrd' I believe are grub commands. If they can't be found, then perhaps grub needs to be re-installed.

I did
Code:
dnf reinstall grub2-efi grub2-efi-modules shim
but it didn't help.

Then I tried again
Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
but it didn't help.

Re: Bootloader has not verified loaded image. System is compromised. Halting.

Described problem persists and another problem has appeared - old kernel is selected in grub menu as default boot menu item. Is it please possible to fix it ?

You can select which kernel you want to be the default by setting the GRUB_DEFAULT= variable in /etc/default/grub. If you want the the first kernel in the list to be the default, use 0, for the second, use 1 etc. which can replace the term "saved". Then run (for efi systems):
Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
You can find the order of kernels in that grub.cfg file by checking the order of the menuentry lines.

I'm using this on another machines with Non-UEFI boot. I'm not sure whether this command will cause another issues on this broken EFI multiboot.

For a non efi machine, grub usually places the grub.cfg file in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg, so one would adjust the grub2-mkconfig command accordingly.

Off course, EFI and non-EFI paths differs. I should have mentioned this so as it to be clear for everyone.

I tried this and this issue with default kernel in boot menu has been solved. But main issues still persists.
