Install fails on EFI machine
Last modified: 2016-04-26 21:24:49 EDT
ovirt-node installation fails when booted in EFI mode.
Partitioning should already setup the EFI partition, but we don't currently populate it correctly.
We need to make sure that we can boot on EFI machines correctly but still maintain compatibility with non EFI machines
Here's how anaconda detects efi system: http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=anaconda.git;a=blob;f=pyanaconda/iutil.py;h=d29bf1edf174dc50ebcbc6cd3251fb9248a7f678;hb=HEAD#l698
And here's how to install EFI bootloader:
Easiest seems to be to just copy grub.efi to the default boot loader's location EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI
This didn't make 2.2.1, so moving to 2.2.2.
@jboggs, can you update status here?
current status is waiting on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=783211
Once it makes it into the stable repos and remaining uefi patches acked/merged we will have a working install.
Bug fixed in 2.2.2 release
