Autoyast for EFI [SLES12 SP5]
For many years I have been using autoyast files to handle my various SLES12 SP5 installation cases (and previous versions too).
I was not using EFI mode on servers or virtual machines and would now like to do so.
After reading the SUSE documentation, I tried to modify the bootloader section to take this mode into account.
I use this kind of bootloader which seems to me simple:
<bootloader> <loader_type>grub2-efi</loader_type> <global> <activate config:type="boolean">true</activate> <append>splash=verbose consoleblank=0</append> <boot_boot>true</boot_boot> <default>SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP5</default> <generic_mbr>true</generic_mbr> <timeout config:type="integer">8</timeout> </global> </bootloader>
The problem is that I can't boot on it either on a physical machine via a PXE boot or on a virtual machine (vmware).
I just see as an error message on the machine, the status "unsuccessfull" for booting from DVD (or PXE for the physical machine)
I was expecting to have problems with the "legacy bios" and "EFI" modes on the same autoyast file, but I didn't expect to be stuck so soon by focusing only on the EFI mode at first.
Any advice to do that ? What's wrong ?
