Installation / Setup Tips

Couldn't install UEFI CentOS 6.2 when BIOS Boot mode as UEFI

Symptom :

  1. Prepare CENTOS DVD and change boot mode to UEFI, save and reset SUT.
  2. Boot to BIOS again, No UEFI DVD media device could be found under Boot Override.
  3. Changed the boot mode to Legacy, the symptom also could be found.

Root cause:

AMI repsonse : After checking, this CentOS 6.2 DVD-ROM not meet the El Torito spec. And our kernel only create the UEFI Boot Option for those CD that follow the El Torito. So we think it is a limition.
