RHEL 6.5 x86_64 boot.iso and UEFI

Latest response

This doc, 2.2.2. Minimal USB Boot Media for UEFI-based Systems says :

Red Hat does not provide an image to produce minimal boot CDs or DVDs for UEFI-based systems.

However, according to Table 2.1 (scroll up the page),

Architecture - UEFI-based AMD64 and Intel 64
Installation DVD - x86_64 DVD ISO image file
Boot CD or boot DVD - rhel-variant-version-x86_64boot.iso

boot.iso does support UEFI. There is images/efidisk.img in boot.iso. Is the above documentation in error?


Hi Akemi. Thanks for the feedback. Our documentation team will check this out for you and confirm.


thank you for reporting this issue; it does definitely seem to be a mistake. I'll check with engineering and we will update the documentation as soon as we get a confirmation.

Thanks, Petr!

Enable F5 UEFI at F10-> boot order

Hi Kelvin,

I guess Akemi knows how to use UEFI, but was confused about statement in the documentation.
This will be fixed by Red Hat's documentation team.

The options you point out may be hardware dependend, so please state the brand and type of the hardware you use for the example.

Kind regards,

Jan Gerrit Kootstra
