Bug#706632: efibootmgr: I confirm this bug
Followup-For: Bug #706632
The first install I made with my new or actually used UEFI enabled computer was from Steves update 2 of EFI boot network install CD:s. A while later I needed to do it again so I did it from update4 as it was the latest at that point. Both worked. After I updated the kernel and grub I ended up in Windows without any grub menu. So to fix this I came back to my Debian install with SuperGrub2 CD. After several tries with efibootmgr and different ways I cannot add an entry to the UEFI Boot table.
When running this command I expect to get an entry to the table:
#efibootmgr --create --gpt --disk /dev/sda --part 4 --write-signature --label "GRUB2" --loader '\EFI\debian\grubx64.efi'
