    Thanks, yak. Unfortunately, copying the wine drive doesn't help.

    What i have now:
    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x184b8eb1
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1           30272       30275       20480   ef  EFI (FAT-12/16/32)
    /dev/sda2   *       30275       30402     1018880   ef  EFI (FAT-12/16/32)

    Couldn't you create an EFI partition using this guide?

    For those experiencing the EFI partition error I think it is possible (in theory at least) to run the installation in a real or virtual Windows machine, then copy the required files/folders from there and proceed with the next steps as I have outlined above.

    The only difference is that I didn't download the ExpressGate from asus.com, but got it on a DVD with my netbook (it seems to be a newer version anyway, 2.2.52 on DVD vs 2.2.44.163 on asus.com). Even if I'd try to download the file, the transfers on that site are horrendously low, like <10KiB/s, that would take me more than a day to download.

    So, anyone cares to tell me what I'm doing wrong, and what should I do to bypass this problem?

    If you try and run this on a windows machine that does not have an EFI partition created already it will give the same error. I have not attempted to create an EFI partition yet on a real windows box so I don't know if this will work or not. The only one that I have access to is on my work computer so I don't know if I will try this.
