why? i know many computer systems with ugly bugs if you don't use boot partitions my old opteron system for example 128gb limit or my system right now if you use a bigger hard-drive than 2gb

i "feel" no negativ side effect using a boot partition.

outdated means: runs bugfree on all hardware `? LOL

you don't need efi at all if you use a boot pardition even if your bios only support only 8gb for /boot.

LOL! do you mean MICROSOFT DOS ?

what a pain in the ass

Features you don't want and you don't need are not "Features"

LOL what GOOD news... i can't wait to bridge my system a friend of my just lose his notebook by "uefi" bugs.

sure but my system works well without UEFI crap!

AND! all amd chipssets support coreboot! this means you can just rip out this crap!

LOL there is no usefull UEFI feature.

There are lots of things you can try with it, so just do it instead of praising some legacy system that was invented 1981...
not useful they only do it to kill anti-patent GPL-v3 software like GRUB

only stupid people think this is not a part of the WAR against open and FREE software.

its the apple way of thinking opensource is only good if you can rape it and sue it with patents.

all other "strong" Free systems must be punished and because of this they build UEFI!
