Thanks both of you for your help. I have now reinstalled wheezy. All
seems to go well again, even for grub-efi to install. Since I did not
get a question I assume the install was to /dev/sda2, where the EFI
partition is. However, independent of BIOS settings and install options
W8 comes up every time, no grub or boot menu visible. Maybe easyBCD is
next step?
