The problem was a reboot (resulting in a boot loop). I may have tested this
on multiple Bay Trail based devices, I don't remember but it was an issue on
Bay Trail devices, which typically use a 32 bit UEFI even though they have a
64 bit capable CPU. There are some rare Bay Trail devices with a 64 bit UEFI
but they are the exception.
