Grub2 has made a lot of things very complicated, but the project is
also not only working with the i386 platform, it is also working on
multiple targets with multiple platforms.
arc, coreboot, efi, emu, ieee1275, loongson, multiboot, qemu, qemu-
mips, pc: for which target regarding i386, ia64, mips, mipsel,
powerpc, sparc64, and x86_64
You may want to give syslinux a go as it may have a healthier efi state.
For syslinux you will need the syslinux source, gnu-efi source, and
I have a guide I updated, but I think it still needs work. I may have
got some commands backwards.
Such as IA64 and IA32 going with syslinux and not gnu-efi.
I referred to the archlinux wiki for syslinux.
I found it a huge pain to even setup grub2 for a serial console to
boot. WIth syslinux, was quite simple. It may be the same way with efi
GRUB2 is okay, but it isn't that great. There are still plenty of
headaches out there with it. Although, I am glad it was working
partially with sparc64 systems.
