Ish. Please run the installation again, at least up until the point
where it recognises (or not) the Windows EFI boot partition. If you
can send logs at that point, that would be great. You'll probably need
to copy them off onto the hard drive somewhere else, or onto a USB
stick. I'm hoping there will be a clue in the logfile, then I'll
probably give you replacements for a couple of the installer packages
or a new image with more debug in the right area. OK?

Thanks for helping with this, it's invaluable.
