UEFI Support

The CERN Cloud Infrastructure supports UEFI boot for new instances. The image must be UEFI compatible and needs to have the following properties:

hw_firmware_type='uefi'
hw_machine_type='q35'
architecture='x86_64'

How to upload an UEFI compatible image to the CERN Cloud

Example:

$ openstack image create --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --file MY_IMAGE_FILE --property hw_firmware_type='uefi' --property hw_machine_type='q35' --property architecture='x86_64' my_uefi_image
