     20For now, MondoRescue doesn't invoke efibootmgr to recreate menu entries, so you'll have to recreate them manually for now. Which also means that after the restore, during the next reboot, you may have to select on which device to boot as the menu may be worngly pointing to inexistant media. In some case the correct entry will automatically be added to your menu. If that's not the case, use efibootmgr from Linux to recreate it.
