> I tried this recently. It installs GRUB to read the configuration file out
of /boot/grub2/grub.cfg,
not out of /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg. The GRUB2 Wiki page doesn't say
anything about
how to get it set correctly for UEFI. Until I do, I need to copy
/boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg to
/boot/grub2/ every time I install a new kernel.
