I have a System76 Gazelle laptop I bought brand new from the company in March 2016. The laptop has an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor with 16GB RAM and a Western Digital Black 500GB NVMe hard drive.
I tried downloading and installing Clear Linux today February 9, 2020 with the graphical installer on the desktop live image. When I install Clear Linux with the destructive option there is no EFI Boot entry being created and I am unable to boot Clear Linux. System76 has never released any firmware updates for this laptop since I bought it so there’s nothing I can do about that. This isn’t the issue anyways since every single other Linux distro that supports EFI has no trouble creating a EFI Boot entry regardless if Grub or the Systemd bootloader is used.
What did Intel do that other distros aren’t doing? How can I work around this bug Intel created?
