I installed grub 2.02+dfg1-20 version on disk MBR and I created menu labelled FreeBSD. Here is where the weird part is I use UEFI boot and entered grub CLI and typed ls(hd0,4) it shows that the filesystem is FAT and that it contains /efi/boot/BOOTx64.efi which I use to boot from using chainloader. And no system files whatsoever.
1 minute later(after some commands) I type that again and see that it now truly recognizes filesystem as UFS, but the /efi directory has gone and now I can not boot how is this even possible.


I didn't installed separate partition(esp) to boot from. I installed it tidely in one partition.

U You provided to less information. Where did u you install grub (in MBR or first partition ?), what OS, what is disk partitioning, is it GPT or MBR etc.

EDIT: On the other hand, if you are multibooting, I'd really consider using efi for booting, and skip grub at all. That of course imply making separate EFI partition.

Thank you for getting engaged but I miraculous managed to solve it on my own after doing some research in forums.
