Bug#858029: partman-efi: Manual partinioning in EFI system without EFI boot partition does not trigger an error message

Dear Steve,

It was the first time I installed something in EFI mode, as in the past I always switched back to legacy mode. So I'm quite sure I booted in EFI mode.

After the installation and seeing that the computer was not booting, I started to research in the internet and found the Debian installation guide I mention in the bug report. After that I started to understand what was going wrong and I installed again Debian from scratch and without changing anything in the BIOS. But this time I allowed partman to do a guided partitioning, which I afterwards tuned to my needs. Partman of course included the EFI boot partition, and this time everything went fine.

Best regards,

Hi Miguel,

That's how the code has worked for me in the past, and it's not
changed in quite a while. Are you sure you booted in EFI mode?
