Are you booting x86 or x86_64 version?
I don't think x86 is supported for UEFI boot.
x86_64 (64bit), of course.
I get grub-EFI boot menu from the DVD, I choose Fedora,
I get the grub-EFI texts about allocating memory pages for LINUX-EFI, loading VMLINUZ,
and then the screen goes blank and everything stops there.
Multiple people have confirmed UEFI boot is broken on Intel 7-series motherboards,
so I believe this is Intel BIOS/firmware bug.
