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

From my tests (Comment 7) in UEFI the "Boot from Hard Disk" option (in file
/EFI/BOOT/grub.cfg) boots:
root='hd0,1'
chainloader /EFI/BOOT/bootx64.efi
where hd0,1 in GRUB2 is the first partition (1) of the first hard disk (0), but
as the system is booting from the live USB, it seems that the first hard disk
is the
USB itself and the PC's hard disk is the second, so it boots to itself. It´s
the same problem as in legacy bios but with GRUB2 commands involved.

Changing this entry to:
set root='hd1,1'
chainloader /EFI/BOOT/bootx64.efi
booted from the PC's hard disk in my case but I don´t know if it´s the cleaner
solution or there is a better way.
