Description

Based on my experience on PC-BSD10.3 for Toshiba dynabookN51(PN51NGP-NHA, UEFI boot machine, Windows8.1 bundled), I raise some bug reports and feature requests. First,

When I select "whole disk", the installer does not create "bios-boot" partition so that the grub-install command fails. For PC-BSD10.3 to work correctly on a UEFI boot machine, both bios-boot partition and
efi partition should be created. (In the contrast, for legacy bios boot machines, only bios-boot is needed in case of GPT scheme.)

#1 Updated by Naomasa Maruyama almost 3 years ago

After having some experiments on other machine(lenovo X230 UEFI bios updated to 2.67), I decided to withdraw this ticket. I could not reproduce the situation on X230. I apologize for having bothered you a lot.
