This didn't work for me.  First, there were 6 folders, not 5, for the IndianSummer release.  Perhaps the [BOOT] folder should not be copied?  Second, when I opt to use the UEFI boot option for the USB drive, the following error continuously scrolls on my screen:

error: no such device: /boot/grub/x86_64-efi/2014-11-23-04-45-08-00

I had the same problem KrunchTime, you can work around it, by copying the same file from the x86-efi folder to x86_64-efi folder.  Its an issue with the ISO image.


For the benefit of other users, when you extract the contents of an IndianSummer ISO, there is a file called 2014-11-23-04-45-08-00 in folder /boot/grub/i386-efi.  You need to copy that file over to /boot/grub/x86_64-efi before copying the files to a USB thumb drive.

Update:
in this thread there is discussion about creating an UEFI boot stick by copying extracted folders of ISO image to the Fat32 partition of a stick. THIS DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE !
I lost a lot of time, then agaida helped me on irc: The ISO image has to be written directly to the device, like shown there: https://manual.siduction.org/hd-ins-opts-oos
An UEFI system will then boot from the stick.

best, gnasch

Thanks for the update. I still haven't tried installing the new version onto my UEFI machine yet.
