Re: Booting NetBSD using UEFI on Dell T610
I got stuck and need some help.
I am trying to install NetBSD/amd64 on Dell T610 using GPT partition
scheme and boot it up with UEFI. I followed the instructions here
http://www.netbsd.org/~mishka/gptboot/, but the machine doesn't boot.
That's for booting from a GPT via PC BIOS.
I can't even boot with PC BIOS. I tried to adjust the beginning of the
GPT partition in MBR, but then I get 'Error read data' from
As far as I know, UEFI is looking for BOOTx64.EFI file, which
located on EFI partition (the first one on disk).
Again, gptboot doesn't provide this.
I have occasionally worked on a bootloader that would provide this,
but my lack of real hardware with UEFI doesn't help.
How can I get it boot? Any advice is much appreciated.
Use a normal MBR?
I have >2TB RAID frame. With MBR I loose much of the diskspace.
