Re: UEFI/"BIOS" booting

Summary:
- Boot flag on MBR partition of type 0xEE is bad on several EFI
   implementations.
- No MBR partition with boot flag is bad on some very few BIOS
   implementations.

Not so few in my experience.

- Compromise is to set the boot flag on a dummy partition of type 0x00.
   This is barely UEFI-compliant because the specs say that a partition of
   type 0x00 shall be regarded as non-existent.

I never thought about this. It may be a workaround with my old UEFI motherboard. Thanks for the tip, I will try it and report.
