Description (last modified by tqh)

makebootable needs EFI platform support added.

Since we can build multiple platforms into Haiku (bios_ia32, efi), makebootable needs to be able to handle this.


for EFI, makebootable should:

  • Validate the presence of an EFI GPT partition
  • Ensure it is formatted with the correct filesystem
  • Ensure our EFI loader is placed somewhere relevant within (EFI/BOOTX64/bootx64.efi, EFI/HAIKU/haiku_loader.efi, etc)
  • Add Haiku as a boot option in NVRAM
