I found that the search command for a file does not work if the file path is complete. That is, the path already contains the device name and disk partition. For example, "search --file (hd0, gpt1)/EFI/BOOT/grub.cfg" returns "no such device" instead of "(hd0, gpt1)". This is a serious problem. I discovered this on Yocto. There, a similar command was used in early GRUB configuration to extract the device and partition from the "cmdpath" variable. And it always doesn't work. It is strange that there are no complaints about this. This problem also exists in GRUB 2.04 and 2.06. Hope it gets resolved.

Best regards,

Vladimir <svv75>
