Getting Debian to boot on an Intel NUC

So after purchasing some Intel NUC’s I wanted to get Debian to boot up on it.  Well apparently Intel has some very specific boot EFI locations.  Supposedly the latest BIOS updated 2/24/14 fixed this, but alas that didn’t work either.

  • Install Debian as you normally would.
  • Download Live CD
  • Boot to Live CD
  • Open Root Terminal
  • $ mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
  • $ mkdir /mnt/EFI/BOOT
  • $ cp /mnt/EFI/debian/* /mnt/EFI/BOOT
  • $ mv /mnt/EFI/BOOT/grubx64.efi /mnt/EFI/BOOT/bootx64.efi

I am assuming you have a x64 install.
