I want to understand why. What is it about the pre-installed editions
that makes them behave differently from the Enterprise edition and
Server 2012? My suspicion is, as I previously wrote, incorrect device
listings in the EFI boot settings. This could screw up any OS,
including Fedora and Ubuntu, that is installed with Secure Boot enabled
and a signed boot loader.
