I'm trying to boot Clear Linux live image on my Toshiba Satellite C655 but it does not support UEFI or EFI. I'm using a USB 2.0 64GB thumbstick

partition map

I wonder if there is a method to boot UEFI partitions from this computer

  • @A.B Intel said that Clear Linux* OS for Intel® Architecture can run on very minimal hardware. For example, it can run on a system with a single core CPU, 128MB of memory, and 600MB of disk space. so I don't know why they require UEFI at the first place – phuclv Mar 11 '18 at 10:53

Note: I am not a native English speaker and writing from Android by trying to remember the exact file, folder and option names, I might enter some names incorrectly

I solved my problem with Clover

  • First I burned the Clover ISO image to blank CD
  • After booting the Clover menu is launched with a GUI which has a dragon image on top left and not much option were listed. You have to exit from Clover menu by selecting exit clover option, then enter boot maintenance management, then boot from file, choose the disk Clear Linux is on, choose EFI, then choose the bootx64.efi to boot
