 ## Installing NetBSD 8.0 on a x86 system with UEFI  ## Installing NetBSD 8.0 on a x86 system with UEFI
   
 Modern x86 machines have UEFI instead of BIOS firmware. Unfortunately, as of the upcoming NetBSD 8.0 release the installer does not fully support this setup. We hope to address this shortcoming quickly after the NetBSD 8.0 release and provide full automatic installations for this kind of systems (and also mixed operating system setups) in NetBSD 8.1.  Modern x86 machines have UEFI instead of BIOS firmware. Unfortunately, as of the NetBSD 8.0 release the installer did not fully support this setup.
   
 This tutorial shows how to semi-manually do it. For simplicity we assume that you have booted the UEFI install image from a USB stick and want to install NetBSD onto the whole disk in the machine.  For NetBSD-current and NetBSD 9 the installer has been enhanced, it should automatically do the right thing for your machine, no matter if it has BIOS or UEFI firmware, or how big the disks are.
