i see that in my test proposal i forgot the Mac specific options

    -apm-block-size 2048 -hfsplus

They are not supposed to influence x86 BIOS or EFI.
Nevertheless it would be better to include them in the test.

I think that, at this point, it would be useful to take one step back. Namely, I have this fact: Porteus Kiosk has no Apple partition map and no hfsplus, and boots on all machines (including the 2007 Mac) both as USB flash drive and as a CD. So, what's the use case for hfsplus on x86? Maybe we should remove it from the default layout created by grub-mkrescue?
