I tried several times to attach the files needed, which are well within your size limit, but every time it spent a while uploading them then abandoned it for no obvious reason. Let me know if you want the files and your preferred way of getting them. Thanks.

I am running on an Intel SR1625URR with an LSI MegaRAID SAS 9240-4i RAID controller, and booting from a USB stick (for a specific reason not relevant to this bug).

Boot without EFI works fine. Boot using all the same software on machines with different hardware also works fine.

Boot via EFI fails, but only in that the RAID controller fails to initialise and hence disks controlled by it are inaccessible after boot - everything else, including CentOS Linux and desktop loaded from the USB stick, works fine.

I attach the output of the messages with both methods of boot.

If there are any other specific steps that would help you please let me know.
