    Subjectboot from efi on x86_64
    looking at the kernel source, after constant failures to boot linux on a core 
    2 imac, has made me understand that only i386 and ia64 support efi booting,
    but x86_64 does not.
    it makes sense, if you think about it... AFAIK, until the new core 2 imacs
    were out there was no x86_64 efi pc, so why should the kernel support it?
    i would like to ask that the efi boot code be ported to x86_64 and so people
    would not have to use boot camp and bios emulation to boot linux on new

    thank you for your time and help.
