Hello, I am wondering if anyone has had success installing CentOS 7 in UEFI mode?
I have been able to get Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop to install in UEFI mode.
I can get CentOS 7 to install in legacy mode.
I just can't seem to get CentOS 7 to install in UEFI mode.
When attempting to install in UEFI mode I used the exact same BIOS settings as I did for Ubuntu
Intel Platform Trust Technology:Enabled
My USB drive was created using Win32disk imager which is like DD for Windows. I have seen issues in the past with using tools such as Rufus or Yumi Boot to get CentOS 7 to install so I chose that tool to create my bootable USB drive.
When I start the setup I am able to get the prompt to test media, troubleshoot or install. I choose the install option. The system proceeds to a new screen and at that point I get nothing more than a blinking cursor in the upper left corner.
Why do I want UEFI mode? Faster boot time. CentOS 7 UEFI suppport has existed since version ~6.5 or later. This is curious to me. I'd welcome anyone's thoughts or input. I'll cross post this in the CentOS forums too and see what happens.
