Maybe UEFI is looking for a boot file and not finding it on DVD.
I don't get any errors about files not found..
When I boot Fedora 16, Fedora 17 or RHEL 6.3 (all x64) installer dvd,
I get the following:
- I boot the burned DVDR in UEFI mode.
- I get the GRUB menu, I choose the default entry to install the Fedora/RHEL distro.
- I get messages about loading VMLINUZ, allocating memory pages for Linux-EFI, etc.
- The display gets cleared (or the resolution changes) and screen goes black/blank,
there's only a cursor blinking.
- Nothing happens after this, the boot is stuck, and I have to reset the system.
So I can't install any Fedora/RHEL Linux in UEFI mode. Installing in legacy BIOS mode
I've tried enabling serial console etc to get *some* output to figure out
what's happening with the UEFI boot but I haven't been successful yet
in getting any output from the kernel.. so I'm not sure if the Linux kernel gets
booted/started or not.
