Please allow me to emphasize it again, for clarity, avoiding the 
reiterated confusion to some readers / users. We are talking about:

* ISO images,
* burnt to _optical media_,
* and using then the resulting _optical media_ to boot in _UEFI mode_,
* in which the _main bootloader_ for such _optical media_ booting in 
such _UEFI mode_ is part of The Syslinux Project.

Unless I am misremembering, there has never been a successful case in 
such conditions presented / hinted / insinuated / suggested in this 
Syslinux Mailing List.

My point - still hoping to be wrong - is that at this point this set of 
conditions cannot be met, and that there has been no developer, with 
the necessary knowledge / skills, actually attempting to achieve a 
successful result.

At this point, some reader could interpret Peter's words as if this 
situation could actually be successfully achieved. I can certainly 
understand why his words would be interpreted that way; unfortunately, 
such interpretation would lead, at this point, to failure.

I hope the current status would be improved in the (near) future.
