betaboon commented Nov 19, 2019

Motivation for this change

As discussed here in #58121 some work was required to allow booting to EFI when starting the VM which is used to run nixos-install.
This is in effect required for cases where we want to install an EFI-bootmanager into non-fallback-locations(as opposed to /EFI/BOOT/...).

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nix-review --run "nix-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits
