Example kickstart for 32/64 bit UEFI on x86
I've tested this kickstart with x86_64 and qemu UEFI and it works fine. I don't have any way to test 32bit booting.
I added the following for x86:
aarch64 should, I think, add:
ppc64 should be:
ppc64le should be:
*** Bug 1460499 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Changes are smaller than I expected:
Example kickstart is missing package grub2-efi-ia32 . System is unable to boot without it. Tested with no-virt option both make-disk with rhel7-minimal.ks and make-iso with rhel7-livemedia.ks .
Adding mentioned package manually makes both .iso and .img bootable.
Legacy grub2-efi in %packages is provided by grub2-efi-x64 , but not with grub2-efi-ia32 , which is not installed.
I have tested both output from make-iso and make-disk .img on both x64(KVM VM) and ia32(Minnowboard Turbot) firmwares. With added package grub2-efi-ia32 it works fine.

Verified on RHEL-7.5-20180201.2 with lorax-19.6.104-1 .
Lorax now contains rhel7-livemedia/minimal.ks with correct packageset
Live .iso is able to boot without problem on 32bit UEFI firmware. All needed packages are installed.
