i just installed Phoenix OS 3.6.1 on my old laptop , everything is working fine except for the keyboard, my laptop's physical keyboard is not working at all , i have to use the virtual keyboard instead which is not ideal for me.

Strangely enough, the physical keyboard work when i boot Phoenix OS as a live image from my usb stick or if i plugged in a external usb keyboard to my laptop

I found a possible solution in this forum : https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-28493-post-220158.html#pid220158 but how do i mount /boot/efi/ using another Linux OS using a Linux Lite live image running on my usb stick ?

I can only see the following folders and images inside /media/linux/PheonixOS/PhoenixOS/
- data
- system
- initrd.img
- kernel
- ramdisk.img

I have installed Phoenix OS using UEFI mode, how do i mount /boot/efi in order to edit the grub.cfg file ?
