GRUB, so why not just disable os-prober on Macs, and then the four broken OS X options
won't even appear. Instead the user can use the built-in firmware boot manager to boot
either Fedora or OS X. Maybe there's some legitimate concern some users won't know
how to activate this boot manager using the option key at the startup chime? This RFE was
likewise proposed a while ago, changed to something else, neither proposal going forward,
and then being close without action.
The best plan is probably to figure out how to extend the boot loader
spec appropriately, add support for it to grub and gut os-prober
Ok for long term. In the next two weeks before freeze is it possible to modify the
grub2-efi package spec file GRUB_MODULES= so that the grux64.efi has xnu, xnu_uuid,
xnu_uuid_test modules baked in? That would fix the main problem in bug 893179 so that the
first two OS X entries would then have a chance of working.
