UEFI Build Test

(1/39) > >>

Jerry:
I'd like a few volunteers to test some of the UEFI builds I've been working on.  If you have a UEFI computer and would like to help test this ISO, please reply to this thread and let me know. This cannot be tested on VirtualBox, it must be installed to actual hardware.

I've added a license file to go with this - https://www.linuxliteos.com/files/EFI-LICENSE.txt You'll have to agree with this first, thank you.
 
During this test please report the following:

- Is Secure Boot and or UEFI enabled on your computer
- What install options you choose (check boxes on the installer etc)
- Whether this is a dual, multiple or single boot
- Any errors that occur during the install: please keep an eye on the installer, see where it crashes
- Screenshot any crashes or error messages

Anyone wanting to use as is where is test builds of Linux Lite with UEFI support can get them here - http://repo.linuxliteos.com/uefitests/

Notes:

- Some Grub menu items are missing/not working
- You should be able to upgrade from within a Series once this is installed
- You will need an internet connection to install this
- ISO is larger than 1.1Gb so it may not work on all BIOS's
- Lite Widget not showing Updates Status
- Please check the rest of this thread before asking any questions

This is no indication that LL will start producing Linux Lite with UEFI support, this is simply an experimental project and perhaps the only chance to get a Linux Lite stable UEFI build.



Thank you in advance, Jerry :)

This was very welcome news, Jerry.

I'd be more than happy to see if this works on my AsusG750js - I have a spare drive to set it up on.

Cheers & a Very Happy New Year!

Best wishes
Mike

I've added a license file to go with this, necessary to ensure this stays as a private test - https://www.linuxliteos.com/files/EFI-LICENSE.txt You'll have to agree with this first, thank you. You will need to install Filezilla to access the ISO.


--- Code: ---sudo apt-get install filezilla
--- End code ---

The only caveat is that I wont be able to do this immediately, due to work pressures.  However, I will give it a go during my next block of holiday, which will be towards the end of March, if not before.

Jerry:
I'd say the test will be well over by then. Cheers anyway.

Folks if you want UEFI, we need volunteers. If I don't get enough, it simply won't happen.
