Known issues
============
* Mac: *some* Mac need rEFInd installed to boot Tails in UEFI mode.
* Mac: *some* Mac fail to shutdown properly when booted in UEFI mode.
* Boot menu display issues (ThinkPad X230, MacBookPro8,1): when
booting in UEFI mode, the syslinux boot menu is not displayed
properly, and one cannot see the kernel command-line when
editing it.
* VirtualBox 4.1.18-dfsg-2+deb7u3: doesn't boot at all from DVD (EFI mode
doesn't help): [[!tails_ticket 7173]]
* Apple MacBookPro5,5 does not boot with Tails in UEFI mode. We are told it
is due to missing native USB drivers, and the Plop boot-manager can
fix it, as it has this drivers.
* Apple MacBook Air 3,2 A1369 EMC 2392
- with rEFInd 0.7.8, USB stick installed with Tails Installer: fails
to boot most of the times. Failure modes:
* blank gray screen (frozen)
* gray screen with strings of seemingly random characters (frozen)
* black rEFInd screen with an empty list of boot options (frozen)
* black rEFInd screen with a working prompt asking for a boot file
- bypassing rEFInd (alt key): system freezes
* Fails to boot from DVD on early 2011 MacBook pro, while 0.23
boots fine.
* Apple MacBookAir5,1 fails to shutdown after booting from a UEFI
Tails USB stick. Works fine when booted from DVD.
* Fails to boot from a USB stick created by Tails Installer, on Mac
Pro Tower from Early 2008: "showed up as an orange 'EFI device' with
the USB logo on it. Clicking on that icon froze the machine and
nothing else happened." Works with grub-efi 2.00-22 on the
same hardware.
