Has BK tried this, can someone post him?


" can't boot Slacko64 on my new laptop, as it seems cannot enable lagacy-boot (CSM) in the UEFI-Setup. "

How to enable lagacy-boot CSM in the UEFI Setup Asus E200HA laptop

1. Under "Security" tab, change "SecureBoot state" to "Disabled". You may need to either enable or disable "SecureBoot control" to alter "SecureBoot state" setting.

2. Under "Boot" tab, set "Fast Boot" to "Disabled".

3. Under "Boot" tab, set "Launch CSM" to "Enabled".

Save and exit the BIOS and use "Esc" key to change the boot order.

Hello, cthisbear.

Euh... If BK built it, he tried it, no? Sounds obvious to me.

What is your point exactly? It's not clear to me. TIA.

Hey Mush:

Cthisbear is trying to assist Barry and his issue with Slacko64. Slacko is not a Barry build but a 01Mick0 build. Barry's trying to get his Asus laptop to boot properly, with keyboard functionality.

Ah. I see.

Thanks, slavvo67.

Sorry if my remark above sounded non-pertinent.

Hi guys,
I fixed the non-functional keyboard, it was a kernel config problem:

http://barryk.org/news/?viewDetailed=00319

Regarding CSM, I don't want to bother with it, not on my new laptop anyway.
I have got booting working fine, just with Secure Boot disabled.

Of course, that does lock out "legacy" Linux ISOs that do not have the UEFI boot goodies.

I really don't use optical media anymore, and for USB booting, my Quirky installer creates a bootable USB stick that is a chameleon, will boot on both ye olde MBR BIOS PCs and modern UEFI-firmware PCs.
It uses Syslinux and has the goodies in the stick for both types of booting.

64-bit only though.

What version of Syslinux do you use?

I have a mix, 4.07 and parts of 6.x.
The 4.07 is for MBR/BIOS booting, and 6.x supplies the EFI parts.

The former was compiled for April, in T2.
The latter is 'syslinux6_modules_efi' PET in my 'common' repo.

Is there advantages to running parts from different versions and can the other projects be converted over to using your Syslinux setup?

Yeah, prior to 6.x is not EFI-aware, 6.x+ is EFI-aware but the DISPLAY feature in syslinux.cfg is broken.

Booting on MBR/BIOS PC, my USB stick uses 4.x Syslinux, so "DISPLAY" works.
Booting on GPT/UEFI PC, my USB stick uses 6.x and DISPLAY does not work.

That is the only reason I mixed them, so at least can get the boot image with "DISPLAY" when booting MBR/BIOS.

I have tried to get the syslinux developers to fix DISPLAY in 6.x, and a couple of developers did try, but no success.

To see how my weird mix of the two syslinux's goes together, you would have to look at the first partition of one of my Quirky USB sticks.

To understand how the BIOS/UEFI MBR/GPT chameleon is created, look in one of my scripts, for example the attached.
