Thanks, I think I have posted similar info many times. And I try to keep updating. I include now in my links the thread with you and YannUbuntu.
Did not want to bump a brilliant thread but would like to suggest stickying http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2021534
as it has been for me very useful in deciphering https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFIBooting#UEFI
and once i work out how to use efibootmgr will have efi drive available to boot from one time boot menu (when bios set appropriately set at ahci) ... lol
Am sure as more people have the need or desire to go for efi on <1TB system very handy thread and thanks to op and you both for http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2021534
