Description David Juran 2015-09-10 04:07:07 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):

Additional info:
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+

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
Comment 27 Edu Alcaniz 2017-03-07 06:24:01 EST
Hi, could I have an update about this BZ?
Comment 28 Lukas Zapletal 2017-03-07 07:52:11 EST
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.
