Last time that I tried to create Ubuntu/grub2 dual-boot on my new Asus computer, which came preinstalled with Windows 8, I almost stoned it. So,
I'm thinking to use extlinux as my bootloader for my new (triple-booted) Ubuntu this time. All my readings suggest that it is possible. But, has anyone done it before? Is it really doable? Is there anything to avoid? How exactly did you do it?
which says there are now ldlinux.e32 (EFI32) or ldlinux.e64 (EFI64) additional module (ldlinux).
in which it shows how to register
syslinux.efi with EFI
However, the https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/103501/boot-partiotionless-disk-with-syslinux seems to be saying something else: "With EFI, this can only be used with legacy booting, which will read the MBR/VBR and boot accordingly. Doing so, most benefits of EFI are lost."
Any help (to boot Linux with extlinux from EFI & GPT)? Thanks.
UPDATE: Note to myself, found how to use EFI in vmware player,
So in case nobody answers, I can try that route, which only requires that I make it working and install a Win8 into VM before I test out the extlinux EFI boot. :-)
