The boot flag is set with one of the MBR partitions. Not with the
EFI System Partition, as that is forbidden, but with partition 1,
which covers the whole ISO.

But i want to test the boot paths of debian-8.2.0-i386-netinst.iso
via EFI from CD and USB stick. With EFI the bootable objects are
marked by other means (El Torito Platform Id, MBR partition type,
GPT type GUID).

I wonder whether
of Debian 8 is suitable for 32 bit qemu at all and whether it knows
that it shall boot /EFI/BOOT/BOOTIA32.EFI rather than BOOTX64.EFI.

Have a nice day :)
