I'm working on two different UEFI setup things right now that will
make these machines work better - see


I'm almost done with #746662, just testing now (forcing also
installing grub to the removable media path).

Next up is the "force using a 32-bit UEFI version og grub even for
64-bit systems" (#768461)

Hopefully a combination of these 2 fixes will make your system work
out of the box...
