Bah ! If you are in that situation when you created the Linux live USB disk using dd as per my previous post and reboot to find out that the UEFI entry for the USB drive is not listed in the bios boot menu – I bet – You would be frustrated.
This situation happened almost a dozen times to me – specifically while using debian-7.2-kde-live.iso. Believe me, this can be tackled as far as you are getting the grub_rescue> terminal on reboot.
You can move forward with the installation – that would be a legacy mode installation and of course – you will have to see a grub_resuce terminal once you finish installation.
* Prepared USB drive wont show up as a UEFI entry in the boot-menu ( F10 while booting )
* Linux installed in legacy ( no UEFI == Legacy ) – reboot greets you with grub_rescue:
* Reboot shows “Invalid media : blahblah” or something and a grub_resuce terminal is seen.
* You can boot directly from the grub_rescue terminal !! Find out in my next blog post.
