#2978 Change: Register EC2 Cloud Images with uefi-preferred AMI flag
Closed: Accepted 4 months ago by zbyszek. Opened 5 months ago by bcotton.

A new feature of EC2 is to be able to register AMIs with a boot mode of uefi-preferred rather than picking one of bios or uefi. In EC2, aarch64 has always been UEFI, while x86-64 started out as BIOS only and some instance types have recently begun to support booting in UEFI mode. Previously, an AMI had to pick if it was UEFI or BIOS. With uefi-preferred it allows an AMI to launch with whatever firmware stack is available for the instance type, preferring UEFI when UEFI is an option.

This proposal is to register the Fedora EC2 images with uefi-preferred, having the effect of switching to booting in UEFI mode on x86-64 in EC2 where available.

Owners, do not implement this work until the FESCo vote has explicitly ended.
The Fedora Program Manager will create a tracking bug in Bugzilla for this Change, which is your indication to proceed.
See the FESCo ticket policy and the Changes policy for more information.

REMINDER: This ticket is for FESCo members to vote on the proposal. Further discussion should happen in the devel list thread linked above.

After a week, the vote is
APPROVED (+6,0,-0)
