I thought Didier Spaier showed us ISOs which boot by SYSLINUX and
Linux sitting in the EFI System Partition.
But i cannot find an example in my ISOs collection.

It may be i confused this with goofiboot equipped slint*.iso images.
In my collection there is also
but this seems to boot by a single blob /EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI of 62 MB.

Didier ? Can you help my fading memory ?

Have a nice day :)
