comment What are the ways of making your own linux distro?
mkcdrec was pretty good and lightweight (we used both it and systemimager), IIRC it's called rear now, probably easier to google up...

comment Use some EFI loader to boot MBR
It's here: rodsbooks.com/refind -- you need the binary built with EDK2 toolchain, not GNU EFI (the latter lacks this ability).

comment How to create bootable flash for “efi-shell”
PS: I make weekly en.altlinux.org/rescue images which include EFI shell, memtest86 and refind, all of those signed with ALT cert stuffed into MS-signed shim in the image -- maybe you'll find those handy, and suggestions are welcome.

comment I messed up my EFI boot, what do I do?
You're advised to read the excellent Rod Smith's intro into EFI bootloaders and most probably remove the extra boot entry with efibootmgr; while at that, I maintain ALT Linux Rescue which would also work with SecureBoot left enabled. EFI stub way is either supported by distro or a major PITA to automate locally.

Hybrid MBR is a hideous hack with quite some data loss potential... and BIOS-booted Linux can use GPT partitions just fine.

comment How to recreate EFI boot partition?
grub-install has learned to grok EFI (you can force it to with --target=x86_64-efi but efivars.ko must be loaded by that time anyways).
