I'm having issues to get elilo to work properly.
I have a ASUS P8P67 PRO. Slackware was installed just fine on a gpt disk, and elilo was installed normally on the EFI partition.
However, when I reboot the system and choose the EFI entry called "Slackware", nothing happens, I hit enter, the screen flashes, and it goes back to the UEFI interface.
There are two more UEFI entries, Windows 7 and kubuntu (another hard drive though) and they both work fine, but I simply cant get elilo to work on this system.
This is what I did: left only one HD plugged on the system and installed Slackware through a USB hard drive. The system asks me if I want to install elilo for this is a EFI system. I say yes and it proceeds normally. The setup process finishes and I reboot the system. Then I try to select Slackware and it doesnt work.
This is what the elilo.conf file in the EFI partition looks like,
append="root=/dev/sda4 vga=normal ro"
I can boot with the USB stick Slackware setup creates, and then I run eliloconfig, it recreates the EFI entry but the sympton persists.
