More fun with Windows 8 UEFI, Secure Boot, Fedora and Ubuntu

Filed under
Linux

Since my last blog post about the HP Pavilion dm1-4310ez, I have continue to investigate and experiment with Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) boot, Secure Boot, and multi-booting with Windows 8 and Linux.

The results have been mixed: I have learned a bit and been frustrated a lot.

What I intend to present here is a summary of what I have learned so far. I know that there has been a lot of information and discussion of EFI and Secure Boot in the Linux community, but it seems to me that most of it has been speculation and opinion based on reading the public statements and information available, and very little of it has been from people who actually have such a system and have tried to set it up with Linux and/or Windows.

So here comes some first-hand information.
