Boot up the OS using this.
Instead of step 6 there, do a
sudo refind-install

That should get back your refind bootloader.

If it happens again within a week, I'd look at the cmos battery on the motherboard. Your motherboard appears to be newer so it shouldn't be an issue.

Something scarier would some sort of surge at shutdown that cleared the bios/cmos...hopefully it was just random and won't happen again. I'd hope a surge while the computer is off, couldn't affect the motherboard. Hopefully the computer is on either a UPS or a working surge suppressor.

can you report

sudo efibootmgr

have you checked for last upgrade Bios ?


well Ithought of the bios this morning went in to see if any updates bios wont connect to the internet tried to find out from asrock forum what the problem is not much luck there i will check efibootmgr and get back to you
