Bug#770231: Amd64-efi installer becomes unresponsive on x86 bios

The bios is EFI capable, but I was booting in legacy mode. This old system was 
built by a very able tech, and it does run two P4s on the motherboard. It's an 
old server. In any case, since the EFI capabilities of the bios were not in 
use, I think you've found the problem. Also, "efi" was part of the installer 
file name I was using, and didn't know if that could have anything to do with 
my problem.

Thank you!
