    EFI Debian CDs, step 4: i386 support

    Continuing on from my third EFI progress report...

    I've added some i386 EFI support in debian-cd and built new images. Alongside a new amd64 image, we now have an i386 image and a mixed image which should hopefully boot and work on both 32-bit and 64-bit machines. The i386 support is more experimental at this point, and it's more difficult for me to test due to a lack of physical hardware. If you've got an older 32-bit EFI machine, this might work for you...

    Grab the images from http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/efi-development/upload4/ if you'd like to help test. Please do, and let me know via debian-boot/debian-cd how you get on.

    As previously, the "bits" subdirectory contains all the tweaked d-i packages I've played with, in both source and binary form. My debian-cd changes are still in my branch but are just about ready for merging I think. I've posted my full set of d-i patches to the debian-boot list for review now, and hopefully we'll be able to get those changes merged in after the Wheezy d-i beta 2 build is done. Full speed ahead for EFI in beta 3!

    You didn't update the 5th(2013) image here on your blog. Thank you for your amazing work!

    Are they ever going to make your installer official? I'm not sure many people know you have solved this problem.
