I have an UEFI Bios and a working bootable system. My boot time is about 45 seconds which seeems slow to me as I use an SSD for my OS. Is there a way of speeding up boot time?
This isn't totally true. It would certianly be easier to get UEFI working by initially booting ito some Linux UEFI environment. But you could also just put the boot manager or bootloader at \EFI\boot\bootx64.efi and configure it. Then set the system to boot UEFI and choose the drive that has this ESP, and it will take you into that bootloader. So assuming it is then co
All boot disks seem to be traditionally legacy. UEFI is fairly recent. Setting my laptop to legacy boot only, will boot Parted Magic from USB key but not my OS. Setting dual boot order to legacy first then UEFI, does not have the desired effect. A happy medium is to hit F12 then choose boot device from list.
I'm struggling to boot Ubuntu from bootable USB I've made using unetbootin. In the older days, when booting laptop you could go into bios and set the boot device. Now I can't set one. There's no hotkey I could press during boot to open up BIOS.
Well with a new uefi motherboard comes new nvram, so did you create a new uefi boot manager entry with efibootmgr? Otherwise you could copy your desired bootloader to \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFIedit: the path above is what the standard indicates is the default uefi application. So it is used when you use external media to boot from for example, in which case you would not have a boot manager entry.
The iso supports both BIOS boot and UEFI boot. Some firmwares have issues booting the isos which support both. Only in such cases should the UEFI boot support be removed.In a similar way it is also possible to create a UEFI-only bootable iso, but neither archiso nor archboot are built that way.
I'm having a problem with my Kubuntu. It's almost a fresh install (I've only installed the typical apps/codecs only).
Sometimes it boots fast, and sometimes it boots slow. It's almost random. So, I installed bootchart and now I bring you the logs of a fast boot and a slow boot. I don't know why dmseg says the boot time is almost the same (~52 seconds).

I've had a nightmare of a time installing Arch with UEFI (Z77e-itx). At first I couldn't get Arch to boot after a few installs, then I managed to get a working system but my windows hard drive somehow managed to lose its boot-loader.
Thanks, I have booted Linux mint live without bricking but it was via bios. Arch errors out so bad I can't even get to grub on the disc http://imgur.com/VYU7GPf sorry for the bad quality, quick snap, not focused... So what you guys are saying is that I would have to some how convert win8 to bios then dual boot traditionally.. I read that UEFI allows you to boot multiboot to both.
