Starting with Cent OS 6.5 the Minimal install CD seems to be also fully EFI compliant. Therefore I try again a native EFI install on my Mac-mini. I have downloaded the latest Cent OS 6.5 based FreePBX-5.211.65-3-x86_64 build.
Well, to make it short, it failed again! It failed in exactly the same way like all previous (EFI modded) FreePBX-4.x install attempts.
The symptom is always identical, - after booting from install media, there is visible for a few seconds a “scrambled, distorted screen”. (Probably the wrong configured FreePBX grub-splash.xpm.gz image?) Then the whole installation is “falling back” immediately to stock Cent OS 6.5 install mode which is displayed then correctly.
After searching around the web I found a very interesting bug report on redhat bugzilla: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=820680
That sounds all very familiar, could it be possible that all these FreePBX Kickstart files / Kickstart sourcefiles are build somehow “EFI incompatible”?
Try to check it m myself, - was unable to find any “–fstype” or “bootloader --location=partition --driveorder=sda” parameters. My knowledge regrading all this is Linux stuff is too limited…
