Subject description: Includes EFI booting and even booting over secure boot
 

Here is EFI bootimage for Puppy CD. It can use to boot 64-bit and 32-bit UEFI computers. It uses refind from Fatdog64.

Known issues:
* 32-bit grub efi configuration file is not yet embedded in grubia32.efi. So it requires grub.cfg to be placed in /boot/grub of puppy CD.

@augras here is the instruction on how to use this efi.img file

1. Install modified remaster script: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=939211#939211

2. Create puppylivecdbuild folder on root folder of a drive

3. Copy all the puppy cd contents to puppylivecdbuild folder

4. Place efi.img on puppylivecdbuild folder

5. Create a grub2 menu entry (grub.cfg) and save in puppylivecdbuild folder

The following step is needed to boot from 32-bit UEFI. If you dont want to boot on 32-bit UEFI then goto step 10

6. copy grub.cfg in puppylivecdbuild

7. create folder named boot puppylivecdbuild

8. goto boot folder and folder named grub

9. goto grub folder and paste the copied grub.cfg

10. Run Puppy Remaster CD and select the drive where the puppylivecdbuild folder that you create is located

11. If the remaster detects puppylivecdbuild folder and ask to reuse the folder. Click YES

12. Follow further step-by-step instructors of the puppy remaster cd. (It is advisable to create an ISO first before burning it to CD/DVD disc)
