Windows 7 & Debian Squeeze UEFI Dual Boot configuration on Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3. Written after the fact so steps may or may not work in this order.


In conclusion: use rEFIt to chainload both win7 and GRUB 2. The Debian ELILO package didn’t really “just work” and needed some messing around with the directory structure (more than the bind mount for GRUB above). Also, the GRUB package seems to get more attention and the configuration generator is shared between different GRUB 2 versions (bios / EFI), so it should be well tested.
