I was thinking of trying out grub.efi as a boot loader. I currently have Grub2 installed and working from the MBR.

I cannot find a grub.efi binary anywhere. Where do I find it?

Grub2 will not support EFI bios files on MBR systems.

I have a uefi system which allows legacy booting so I currently use Grub2 which is installed in a 2nd hard disk. I am able to boot into linux using elilo so I would have thought I could do it with grub.efi. I want to follow instructions here but I cannot find the grubx64.efi file.

Step 1 Rebuild grub2 with efi support "--with-platform=efi" (The SlackBuild from does not do this)
Step 2 Create grub.efi with grub-mkimage
