Bug#729519: missing Master Boot Record


since IA64 is said to boot via EFI, you'd probably need a GPT
(with "protective MBR").

Do you have a particular system at hand which would boot
via MBR or GPT ?

Are you apt to equip the ISO image with a GPT which contains
an EFI System partition that points to the file /boot/boot.img ?
(First LBA 746380, Last LBA 811915,
 Partition type UUID C12A7328-F81F-11D2-BA4B-00A0C93EC93B)

The MBR partition for EFI would have to point to the same range
and bear type 0xEF.
But GPT prescribes that the only partition in the MBR table
should have type 0xEE and span over the whole disk (i.e. ISO

Have a nice day :)
