Introduction

Super Grub2 Disk needs to be tested to see if EFI mode was builtin in it or not. So you need a virtual machine with an EFI capable boot firmware (not sure of the right technical name).

Virtualbox

  • Select Virtual machine
  • Settings
  • System
  • Enable EFI (only special OS)
  • OK

KVM and Ovmf

This is to force an EFI-only system so that you know that it actually works.

Requisites

apt-get install kvm ovmf
