Today I have installed Wheezy on UEFI system, Asus UX31A to be more
While installing I faced some issues.
Looks like installer can't recognize and do not ask whenever system is
BIOS or UEFI and installs grub-pc,
while grub-uefi required in such case. Thus making system unbootable.
One need to 'fix' it from the bootable cd/usb.
After manually installing grub-uefi-amd64 and running
you have to run
`efibootmgr -c -l '\efi\debian\grubx64.efi' -L Debian`
and then remove/edit boot entries with `efibootmgr -B -b NNNNN`
I found those steps not so easy to perform for many users and bielive such
functionality should be intergrated
in to the Debian installer.
My question is there a work in progress on that? If so, how can I help ?
There is actually a discussion about it on the debian-devel list.
That discussion isn't about UEFI but about UEFI's Secure Boot feature.
``EFI and Secure Boot'' precisely.
