Syslinux should work fine with UEFI (it does for me), and if for some
reason you can't disable secure boot, download the Linux Foundation
UEFI pre-loader (to use it, rename syslinux' bootx64.efi to
loader.efi, rename Foundation's preloader.efi to bootx64.efi and place
hashtool.efi in the same directory as bootx64.efi and loader.efi; the
first time you boot, HashTool will be started, select Enroll hash and
then loader.efi, then Exit, and Syslinux will start).
