Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 856399
RC2 DVD is missing grub2-efi and shim packages
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:32:06 EDT
UEFI install from RC2 DVD doesn't work due to missing packages. grub2-efi and shim need to be included.
This is in comps, these days. We have grub-efi in the anaconda-tools group, we need to switch that out.

+1 blocker, we consider EFI installs blocker for Alpha (since 17). Criterion is "The installer must boot (if appropriate) and run on all primary architectures, with all system firmware types that are common on those architectures, from default live image, DVD, and boot.iso install media when written to an optical disc and when written to a USB stick with at least one of the officially supported methods" (the 'all system firmware types that are common' language is considered to cover EFI).
I have pushed a fix to comps for this - http://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/comps.git/commit/?id=e863360d2e620d8f505b3c09d78568cc8ec02510 . Once mash is done, it should be fixed in RC3.
Discussed at 2012-09-12 blocker review meeting. Accepting as a blocker per criterion "In most cases, a system installed according to any of the above criteria must boot to the 'firstboot' utility on the first boot after installation, without unintended user intervention, unless the user explicitly chooses to boot in non-graphical mode. The firstboot utility must be able to create a working user account" combined with the above criterion.
This is fixed in RC3, both packages are present. I just loop-mounted the DVD and checked.
