One machine at my disposal predates the existence of EFI.  It is the
only one that had no problem when MSI was first enabled in 7.99.64.

The others have EFI, but I'm not sure what's being used when calling
for the boot menu to boot from USB.  The USB stick is a plain MBR
setup.  (The machines otherwise boot Linux Mint from hard disk.)
