There are reports of failure to boot grub2 on some UEFI systems. So far
reports are about Dell Inspiron 15z 5523 and asus X202e / S200 / VivoBook.

Details are https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=800035

It contains links to two openSUSE forum threads which also have some
screenshots. One of interest is http://susepaste.org/10571814.

Original report was about ELILO which fails to boot as well.

Stephan Kulow from SUSE (Cc'ed) has Dell Inspirion and is willing to provide
debug information if instructions can be given. I tried to collect at least
lsmmap/lsefimmap but apparently grub2 is not even able to load modules in this
case. If some special GRUB2 build is required I offer my help to do it.
