I just tried Win7 SP1 x64, and it seems to install and work OK in UEFI mode.
After installation I verified it had created GPT system partition,
and also I used "bcdedit" to verify windows has booted using bootmgfw.efi and
So yes, win7 works in UEFI mode, but f16/f17/rhel63 x64 fail in UEFI mode.
Should I open a fedora bugzilla ticket?
Probably - but first, could you try booting the iso at
? It's using a boot
process that's a bit different (and more like what F18 will have), so
and the code is different enough that there's some chance any given
bug is incidentally fixed.
