NAME

bootctl – Control the firmware and boot manager settings

SYNOPSIS

bootctl [OPTIONS…]status

bootctl [OPTIONS…]update

bootctl [OPTIONS…]install

bootctl [OPTIONS…]remove

DESCRIPTION

bootctl checks, updates, installs or removes the boot loader from the
current system.

bootctl status checks and prints the currently installed versions of
the boot loader binaries and all current EFI boot variables.

bootctl update updates all installed versions of systemd-boot, if the
current version is newer than the version installed in the EFI system
partition. This also includes the EFI default/fallback loader at
/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.

bootctl install installs systemd-boot into the EFI system partition. A
copy of systemd-boot will be stored as the EFI default/fallback loader
at /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.

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

If no command is passed, status is implied.
