systemd-gpt-auto-generator and systemd-efi-boot-generator are binaries,
but I can try to remove them.
"Note that this generator has no effect on non-GPT systems, on systems
where the units are explicitly configured (for example, listed in
fstab(5)), or where the mount points are non-empty."
If it works as documented, it shouldn't do anything because all the
mount points are listed in fstab.
Note too that I blew away Windows completely, so I don't have an EFI
System Partition, but I do have an EFI type bios.
I tried removing the files, but that didn't help.
This type of problem reinforces my dislike of systemd. If it were a
simple boot script, I could just comment out the offending line and get
up and debug that function. Here, the logic if buried deep in compiled
code or multiple configuration files with opaque inter-dependencies.
I'm really trying to make this work, but it keeps throwing problems up.
I tried Fedora 20 (with LXDE) and it didn't seem to work either. It
hangs with no apparent error messages.
