Re: UEFI booting without a bootloader

Thank you!

It works with anything -- I did it with Slackware 14.1 today.

Although it works best with Debian because of the kernel post-install script -- with other distributions that do not have this feature the kernel image & initramfs would have to be copied over manually whenever the kernel is updated (not very often in Slackware).
