Incomplete install of zenwalk-current-15.0-200101.iso on USB3 external hard drive

I have Arch Linux installed on the internal hard drive of my HP laptop and it boots in UEFI mode.
I had Debian Testing installed on an external hard drive and it also booted in UEFI mode.
I wanted to replace Debian by Zenwalk preferably, or some other Slackware derivative.
The installation appeared to go fine until the elilo step ...

1) The installer did not offer me the option of installing to the /boot partition on the external hard drive, which I had prepared. (It would be nice to be able to choose this in future.)

2) The installer said it would add Zenwalk to the existing /boot partition of the internal hard drive, and I accepted this option.

3) When I tried to boot the "installed" Zenwalk system, it wouldn't.

4) The /boot/efi on the external hard drive is empty and the /boot/efi on the internal hard drive contains no Zenwalk/Slackware entries.

Apart from trying another Slackware derivative and installer, I'm at at a loss of how to fix this. All my experience is with Arch and Debian and grub2. Slackware and elilo are new territory for me.

Any suggestions?

Kind regards,
