I am aware that the issue of creating a UEFI-bootable USBs has been covered far and wide. However, from the first round of research I ended up feeling that the information gained is either hyper-specific, super-abundant, too cryptic or a combination of these. For my case, capabilities and circumstances, at least. So I post a question afresh. Thanks for bearing with this.
A Debian live system on UEFI-bootable USB stick.
- One file. I have downloaded the hybrid ISO image. For the preciseness' sake this is the file debian-live-8.2.0-amd64-gnome-desktop.iso from this repository.
- One device. With that file I need to create a USB disk that, importantly, is UEFI bootable.
- One tool. I would like to use GParted to do this, possibly via the GUI.
I did manage to use GParted and create a USB pendrive that is BIOS bootable. I did not get under the belt the conditions and steps to make it UEFI bootable though.
The questions are:
- Is this task possible? Please feel free to point out flawed ambitions.
- If so, would someone please write down some sort of pseudocode with the sequence of operations to do so with GParted?
- If not, what are the operations to implement this with which other Linux tool?
Thanks for helping out!
