[Discuss] UEFI

Got it working.  The magical incantation, at least in my case, was to
update the bios (old version was buggy), enable legacy bios mode,
enable uefi, switch srt to ata.  I can't see the ssd yet but it's so
small I don't mind.  Everything else seems to be working fine.

FWIW I noticed this on xubuntu.  I was doing updates and while this
was happening in another terminal tab I enabled ufw.  Back in my
apt-get tab the downloads stopped.  I then disabled ufw and the
downloads continued.  It seems to only happen if you change ufw during
the download.  A bit unexpected.  Pun intended.

Anyway, so nice not to be using that turd called win8 any longer.
Thanks for the tip!
