Not able to boot form HDD via UEFI

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – You said you can boot Win8 - does that mean you still have that on your HDD? Since you also said you created an EFI System Partition, do you now have 2 of them (as only 1 will be used)? If you want to dual boot, keeping win8's setup and running `gummiboot --install` and adding an arch entry to ${esp-partition}/loader/entries/ should work fine.Also note that when you try using gummiboot you need your kernel/initrd installed to the ESP so that gummiboot has access to the files. (simplest way: reinstall the `linux` package after the ESP is mounted to /boot and keep the /boot mountpoint point (HowTos)
