I have a newly installed Fedora 19 on an Intel NUC computer. During installation, I selected the "reclaim all space" option and took the default partitioning. The install created an EFI boot partition, but the BIOS on the computer does not seem to recognize it. I can boot Fedora Live from a USB stick and mount the partitions without issue.
If the UEFI boot and Legacy boot options are both selected, the BIOS displays
Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key.
If either of the options are unchecked:
A bootable device has not been detected. Please refer to the Product Guide at http://support.interl.com/support/motherboards/desktop
I did not find any helpful info at the URL above...
Here is the partition table:
Number Start (sector) End (sector) Size Code Name 1 2048 411647 200.0 MiB EF00 EFI System Partition 2 411648 1435647 500.0 MiB 0700 3 1435648 234440703 111.1 GiB 8E00
And the details on partition 1:
Partition number (1-3): 1 Partition GUID code: C12A7328-F81F-11D2-BA4B-00A0C93EC93B (EFI System) Partition unique GUID: C81832BE-6B66-474C-99B3-8C4DF9654B93 First sector: 2048 (at 1024.0 KiB) Last sector: 411647 (at 201.0 MiB) Partition size: 409600 sectors (200.0 MiB) Attribute flags: 0000000000000000 Partition name: 'EFI System Partition'
I've been unsuccessful in finding details that match this particular scenario
Here is the output from efibootmgr after booting from the USB stick.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to boot directly from the SATA drive, but at this point, I'd also be open to a solution that has a multi-stage boot using a USB stick -- as long as the root partition is on the SATA drive.
