I think we should get the bootloader installation sorted out first so users don’t get stuck in the end once elilo gets installed.
Is there any chance you could test-install GRUB on any of your machines so we can find out what modifications are necessary to get grub-installer work on ia64?
I assume we don’t need to change much as the environment behaves very similar to x86_64.
If we’re lucky, it’s just a matter of enabling the grub-installer package on ia64 and add “ia64” to the architecture matching for “amd64-efi”.
