UEFI installation fails to boot

Using the latest (2012.12.01) image, I can boot the CD in UEFI mode, `modprobe efivars` and `efibootmgr` work fine and I finished the installation.

However, upon trying to boot it, after a few seconds of init output, the screen turns black and nothing happens.

Motherboard is ASUS M5A97 Evo.

Re: UEFI installation fails to boot

Sounds like KMS...


Also, not an installation issue: moving to Kernel & Hardware

Re: UEFI installation fails to boot

With nomodeset in the kernel parameters, I can boot and get to a command line, but when I try to start X, I get an error message stating that it can't set the mode, so there's less screens than it detected and therefore fails to start.

Without nomodeset, instead of the screen working, as soon as it gets to the part of booting up where it would change the resolution, the screen just violently flashes black and white.

Re: UEFI installation fails to boot

So, you need to work out the appropriate solution for your (unnamed) graphics card. The wiki has the details...
