Building a live-run spin of Fedora with EFI support?


Hey guys,

We have been using our own spin of Fedora 17 we created from a kickstart with all of our packages on it. Both CD and USB. Now we would like to add support to our live image for EFI however I can't find any good instructions on how to do this. When I use the ISO to disk script it throws an error saying that the live image does not support EFT booting. I've done numerous search on that and anything similar but I am not getting back any good results. Could anyone point me in the right direction?

Thank you,

nomb

Your problem sounds like this, though this is for fedora 16. May have a look, if not already:

Thanks!

What I'm looking for are the modifications I have to make to the iso to get it to be recognized as having efi support so the usb drive will boot via efi.

Thank you,
