Support UEFI in PureOS
Closed, ResolvedPublic

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?

This is resolved now - please test the images available on https://downloads.pureos.net/byzantium/ (preferably the latest ones built ^^) as I could only test this on a few systems and configurations that I had available. The images should support UEFI, as long as secure boot is not enforced, as the necessary pieces are not signed.
