1README for mondo/mindi usage on UEFI based systems
2
3A new replacement of the BIOS has emerged called UEFI.
4
5Depending on the boot mode you use (UEFI or BIOS), mondo and mindi will have te behave accordingly.
6Depending of your choice, software configuration, you may also use GPT or MBR as a file table format. Refer to README.ia64 for more details on how mondo and mindi deal with that.

8When booting in UEFI mode on a RHEL6/CentOS6 system, the current media made doesn't boot automatically yet.
9In order to restore your system, you'll have to go on the UEFI sheel and do the following:
10
11Shell> FS0:
12FS0:\> CD EFI
13FS0:\EFI\> CD BOOT
14FS0:\EFI\BOOT\> grub
15
16Then you'll be at the standard boot menu to restore your system with the choice of options.
17You'll have to respect the case used inthe example upper.
18
19For now, MondoRescue doesn't invoke efibootmgr to recreate menu entries, so you'll have to recreate them manually for now.

21Please report any problem around that tool to bruno@mondorescue.org
