Dear All,

How can i install debian with UEFI support? Is there any simple tutorial?
Also do i have to disable the secure boot and then proceed with uefi
I have tried but then a message "could not authenticate boot media" emerges
and the boot stop right there.
I am new to debian and i don't want to abandon for this silly reason.

Thank you

Unless things have changed very recently, yes -- you need to disable
secure boot, then you can do an install to UEFI media. I say this with
the caveat that I have used UEFI-aware Debian install media but the only
UEFI install I have actually done was of LFS not Debian.

Debian install media can boot a UEFI-aware machine if secure boot is
disabled. I believe the live images only use MBR boot method, presumably
so they can work on the largest number of machines, even old ones
(UEFI-only machines are only just now emerging)


I thought UEFI compatible installations was the default now.
I'm pretty sure my hardware is uefi-ized, and it's all working fine.
Then again, I did not install current stable, but rather upgraded to Jessie from old stable (wheezy)
