[Ubuntu] Boot USB after error mmx64.efi not found

UEFI, great leap into the future and also great pain.

There is a funny error that can happen after creating a UEFI bootable USB to install a linux distro for example. If the installation is not completed immediately and the system is restarted, some files are left in some area of the EFI partition (I guess) and subsequent attempts to boot the exact same device will fail with an error:

Failed to open \EFI\BOOT\mmx64.efi - Not Found
Failed to load image \EFI\BOOT\mmx64.efi: Not Found
Failed to start MokManager: Not Fond
Something has gone seriously wrong: import_mok_state() failed


The easiest fix, is to simply browse the USB drive and go into the efi/boot folder, then copy the grubx64.efi file and rename it to mmx64.efi

The next boot will work again as intended. Magic of the machines
