NAME

       bootctl - Control the firmware and boot manager settings

SYNOPSIS

       bootctl [OPTIONS...] {COMMAND}

DESCRIPTION

       bootctl can check the EFI boot loader status, list available entries, and install, update,
       or remove the systemd-boot(7) boot loader on the current system.

OPTIONS

       The following options are understood:

       -h, --help
           Print a short help text and exit.

       --version
           Print a short version string and exit.

       --path=
           Path to the EFI System Partition (ESP). If not specified, /efi, /boot, and /boot/efi
           are checked in turn. It is recommended to mount the ESP to /boot, if possible.

       -p, --print-path
           This option modifies the behaviour of status. Just print the path to the EFI System
           Partition (ESP) to standard output and exit.

       --no-variables
           Do not touch the EFI boot variables.

COMMANDS

       status
           Shows the currently installed versions of the boot loader binaries and all current EFI
           boot variables. If no command is specified, this is the implied default.

       list
           Shows all configured boot loader entries.

       update
           Updates all installed versions of systemd-boot(7), if the current version is newer
           than the version installed in the EFI system partition. This also includes the EFI
           default/fallback loader at ESP/EFI/BOOT/BOOT*.EFI. A systemd-boot entry in the EFI
           boot variables is created if there is no current entry. The created entry will be
           added to the end of the boot order list.

       install
           Installs systemd-boot into the EFI system partition. A copy of systemd-boot will be
           stored as the EFI default/fallback loader at ESP/EFI/BOOT/BOOT*.EFI. A systemd-boot
           entry in the EFI boot variables is created and added to the top of the boot order
           list.

       remove
           Removes all installed versions of systemd-boot from the EFI system partition, and
           removes systemd-boot from the EFI boot variables.

EXIT STATUS

       On success, 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
