I have EFI boot working on my Samsung Series 9.

It's a little messed up. There aren't any tools to control the EFI boot variables, for example, so the EFI boot menu has no timeout and I have to hit Enter before it'll boot.

And the GRUB display is waaaay off center. It's like GRUB thinks the framebuffer is offset by 800 pixels or so.

But it's usable.

Huh. Thanks.

It might be nice if there was some visibility for boot options in the Gnome System Settings.
