[RFE] Make the foreman bootdisk full-host image work on UEFI systems
Last modified: 2018-06-21 06:48:43 EDT
Description of problem:
The foreman full-host bootdisk does today not work on UEFI-only systems like microsoft HyperV gen 2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Possibly as simple as adding the '--uefi' flag to call to "isohybrid" in iso_generator.rb, but this is purely a speculation.
Please note PXE-less ISO image is compatible with UEFI, so it can be used as a workaround. It's present in 6.1+

Upstream patch is at https://github.com/theforeman/foreman_bootdisk/pull/33
Hello, I have evaluated the options, created initial version for Full host image (see comment 24) but for other image types, we need some changes in the iPXE firmware. I filed new BZ for this for our booloader team: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1401491
Hi, could I have an update about this BZ?
Yes, we are missing Satellite 6.3 with this one for sure, it's complicated case, we are working with platform to make some changes in iPXE project and still prototyping and testing.
New upstream patch for Satellite 6.3 is at https://github.com/theforeman/foreman_bootdisk/pull/64
