Red face EFI Compliant Grub


I am planning to use EFI BIOS in my system with GRUB as the boot loader. Is it possible to use Grub loader with EFI BIOS?? If yes, whether Grub needs to be EFI compliant to use with EFI BIOS??

Yes. Just make sure you download/install the correct version of grub. In Debian, I believe the package is called grub-efi.
