How to install turnkey v.11 on 32bit mac using grub-efi instead of grub-pc, and how to convert an existing grub-pc install
In http://code.turnkeylinux.org/di-live/d-i/source/grub-installer/grub-inst... there is some evidence that turnkey might install using grub-efi instead of grub-pc:
case $ARCH in i386/mac|amd64/mac)
However 3 lines below there is:
# This point can't be reached (yet). See debian/isinstallable.
Does this mean that on a mac always grub-pc will be installed?
When efi installation on a mac is possible, what are its requirements?
As current turnkey core version 11.1 (ubuntu 10.04.1) seems to install using grub-pc (bios) instead of grub-efi (on a drive that was partitioned using MBR and did not already contain a bootable FAT32 EFI partition).
Roughly which steps should be taken to convert current turnkey core installation with grub-pc to grub-efi?
- backup partitions
- GUID partition the drive (instead of MBR)
- create 100MB bootable FAT32 EFI partition
- copy grub.efi and rename (/EFI/BOOT/BOOTIA32.EFI) to this partition
- copy *.mod and *.lst to the same directory as BOOTIA32.EFI
- restore (and resize) old partitions
