Default installation with UEFI

Hi

Does any of you have some knowledge on how to install Debian testing
with UEFI?

I looked via search function of the web sites in

- debian.org
- wiki.debian.org

with 0 hits. I found some links that described the howto, but they seem
outdated:

- install via MBR and grub-pc (works)
- install grub-efi-amd64 (works)
- install grub on /dev/sda (works with efivars errors as expected)

The thing that didn't work out for me was the final copying of the
created .efi file to /boot/efi/efi/bootx64.efi. My UEFI mobo doesn't
find the entry and I end up with a non-booting installation.

Well knowing that this could start a flame which I don't intend to do:
Any *buntu installer of 12.04 comes with full UEFI support and works
like a charm. But I want Debian. And yes, doing it the MBR way would be
a possible fallback, but it's about going for the future. ;-)

Thanks for any insights on this.

There was a discussion at the devel mailing list:

http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2012/01/msg00168.html

And also an article from the same person who started the above thread:

http://tanguy.ortolo.eu/blog/article51/

(both seem to be quite recent)

Can't comment on the methods, sorry, I'm afraid I'm still stuck with the
old BIOS in all of my systems and haven't had the chance to test the new
implementation ;-(

Pff, a flame war about what ?

Bad luck, I fortunately share your "bad luck" and I'm happy with it.

I've got some Win-Friends, I guess next X-Mas they'll give me their PCs,
so I'm able to improve my Linuxes and they can run their Windows 8.

Hi,
I have the ASUS M5A97 which has the UEFI system.
PClinuxos,Fedora17 both run. The bios is a Linux system, it seems to recognise
the installation system because Linux has no problems and Windows 7+ instals
with the UEFI extension.
32 bit pclos will not install if win7-64 is installed., 64 bit has no
problems..
USB 3,sata 3 very good.
Gerald

Mmmm, "uefi site:lists.debian.org" brings up some hits, but see these:

http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2012/07/msg00040.html
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2012/07/msg00048.html

still in progress ...

Thanks for this, hadn't seen it yet.

I tried this one out before I posted. It doesn't work for my setup.

I will stick to "old style", too, for the time being. This whole UEFI
thing hasn't landed in Debian land yet AFAICS.

Besides the "all new and shiny" thing about UEFI, booting with grub-pc
works pretty ok for me at the moment.

Thanks to all who replied.
