Support UEFI in PureOS
Open, HighPublic

Description

We will want to add UEFI support to PureOS at some point (not with signed secure-boot keys at first, but at least ensure PureOS is able to boot on UEFi systems).

Is there any workaround for this, any way to install PureOS on a UEFI system? I would like to try PureOS on my laptop but it seems I am stuck due to this issue.

I haven't tried it yet but found this possible work around that definitely isn't perfect but I will be trying this weekend.

From another tracker ticket.

Is there an estimated time for this please?

The only thing I can say at the moment that we will have this done for the next release of PureOS. I know this is kind of vague, but at the moment I can't make a more definitive statement about it, sorry.
Most likely this feature will come with a complete overhaul of the process we use to build images for PureOS.

I have a preliminary image with PureOS 10 for UEFI available, but some polishing work is still needed on this.

I have tested PureOS 10 on a device with UEFI and it booted. A Librem Mini v1 that was not yet flashed with Pureboot/coreboot+seabios.
I can ask around in some chats if anyone with libreboot is willing to try it, because that would be very cool.

@mak also would it make sense to paste the link to download the image in question here, in case anyone is willing to test and provide feedback?
