Just want to point out: 1) the Debian LIVE media does NOT support UEFI in 
anyway and 2) I suggest against using to to install.

Even with the Debian netinst I do have "issues" installing it on a Librebooted 
machine... depending on LB version.  Old versions required "manually" editing 
LB's grub settings to work, with new LB version - seems to work a lot better :)

Are you _sure_ this is a Debian ISO issue and not your USB drive?  I only have 
one (out of a dozen or so) USB sticks that will work with LB, all others fail 
to boot...

Glad you got Debian on there, I certainly use the install method, but I'm glad 
you got it working.
