I'm trying to install Fedora 19 on a UEFI computer. The laptop is an ASUS Q500A with Aptio UEFI (firmware or BIOS) version 208, GOP 18.104.22.1685 (Aptio is American Megatrends). I downloaded the latest ISO from Fedora's site named Fedora-Live-Desktop-x86_64-19-1.
I cannot get the laptop to recognize the Fedora Live CD (DVD actually) as a boot device. When I enter Boot Menu, the DVD is not listed as an available boot device. The laptop is currently configured with Secure Boot OFF. Additionally, CSM Mode (legacy mode) is OFF.
I can boot to Gparted in the same config, I can boot to Windows 8 in the same config, and I can boot to rEFInd in the same config. I can also boot Fedora 19 if I switch to CSM Mode (legacy mode).
I've been chasing my tail in circles for three days with this. A couple of questions before I give up:
- Can anyone confirm they've actually installed F19 on a UEFI system?
- Are there any known compatibility issues between F19, ASUS, or Aptio UEFI?
- Is there anything obvious that I missed to cause F19 not to be listed as bootable?
