|The key to understanding UEFI booting is that it's not only dependent on the contents of the hard drive, but also on a UEFI registry stored in some chip on the motherboard.|
This registry can only be modified by an OS that was booted with UEFI. Systems booted the "legacy" way don't have access to this hardware feature, so you have to ensure you're booting whatever system you're using to work on this with UEFI.
The tool used to manipulate this registry on GNU/Linux is efibootmgr.
Here's a promising-looking throve of information on this subject: http://www.rodsbooks.com/efi-bootloaders/
I just skimmed it, and it looked like a good reference.
