Intalling Debian on an UEFI laptop

I have a ASUS A55V UEFI Laptop. Install Debian linux on it, drove me up to the wall, then, a friend of mine (Bureado) pointed me out this tutorial

My advice: Use the latest CD of Debian Wheezy, run the installation CD without UEFI support, install Debian following the video tutorial without, DO NOT install a boot loader manager, when the installation is finished reboot the machine and use the installation CD with UEFI support, press 'c' to enter to the grub command pront and run the Debian installed


grub> set root=(hd0,gpt2) 

grub> linux /vmlinu_tab_ ro root=/dev/mapper/xen-linux 

grub> initrd /initrd_tab_ g

rub> boot

then login as root and install grub with uefi support

aptitude install grub-efi-amd64


aptitude install grub-efi-ia32

depending on your computer

then (in either case)

grub-install && update-grub 

 Now you have Debian installed with its boot loader manager
