A new Flyspray task has been opened.  Details are below. 

User who did this - txcanyon (txcanyon) 

Attached to Project - OpenWrt/LEDE Project
Summary - Snapshot OR 21.02.0-rc1-x86_64 will not boot EFI
Task Type - Bug Report
Category - Base system
Status - Unconfirmed
Assigned To - 
Operating System - All
Severity - Low
Priority - Very Low
Reported Version - Trunk
Due in Version - Undecided
Due Date - Undecided
Details - System: AsRock J5005-ITX (EFI only boot), 4GB ram, Intel Dual 1000PT server adapter
Steps used to typically install snapshot:

Boot SystemRescueCD to prompt
issue dd if=openwrt-xxx of=/dev/sda
partitions are copied over, reboot
Error on Snapshot: "error: disk 'hd0,gpt1' not found

on RC1 file copies over as above but it does not boot in any fashion just returns to the bios screen.

It's been a long time since I tested the EFI snapshots, but at one point they worked fine. Given that the EFI support was added to master, I decided to wait on 2021.02 for full implementation.

The original pull on github was https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1968, but it has since been closed, and I saw there was some work on the EFI stack for dual booting. That image may in fact boot on a non-EFI system, but I do not have any way to test.

At this point I would say both snapshot and RC1 are broken for x86_64 EFI systems.
