I tried on both UEFI and non-UEFI machine, "Boot from Hard Disk" option
fail
and thus I think that the problem is not related to UEFI.

Checked with legacy bios with isolinux bootloader. In "Boot from Hard Disk" the
'Disk' is your primary hard drive define by bios with id 0x80.

When booting off from USB, the primary hard drive is the USB disk itself as
it's the booted device thus got assigned id 0x80. So if you "Boot from Hard
Disk" it boots to itself again.

I'm not sure, we'd better check with Steffen how to handle such case properly.
Maybe we have to use 0x81 to boot secondary disk.

About the efi, I'm looking for the hardware to test.
