I tried to install the latest stable Debian release (Debian 7.0 "Wheezy") using the Debian Multi-arch netinstall (AMD64) "debian-7.0.0-amd64-i386-netinst.iso" on my laptop. My laptop has a SecureCore Tiano™ firmware set to "UEFI only".
Due to specific requirements:
- EFI only installation
- GPT partition table
- Encrypted LVMs
I encountered an issue/bug during the bootloader install step in expert mode: GRUB/default Debian installer bootloader installation failed.
I need to boot on a Debian live CD/USB in order to update/install GRUB EFI and repair the installed Debian system on the laptop (which currently miss a bootloader).
I build a Debian 7.0 Live CD with the "AMD64 rescue+non free" ISO but the live CD won't boot in UEFI only mode (where the regular Debian DVD install does).
Problem is: My second PC runs Windows 7 and I need to build a Live EFI friendly Debian CD/USB on that platform.
I used Pendrive Linux "Universal USB Installer" which can't build "EFI enabled" bootable USB (I experienced this issue previously with the Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" installer: no UEFI only boot).
I need to create a Debian Live on USB bootable in EFI mode, what tool/settings should I consider?
