I don't believe anything shows any differently for secure+EFI boot, (vs efi) so it'll use identical testcases as EFI.

Therefore, I believe the testcase should provide instructions to:

  • Check to see if the target drive has any mounted partitions
  • Unmount any partitions if found

…before launching the installer.

I just booted [19.10] daily on vaiocrap & noticed an OEM option at grub; maybe we should have testcase(s) for that??

They will be new testcases; the files currently are all local (diffs online were a form of backup, though created at that point as I wanted two to speed creation of the fourth one via copy/paste); I haven't yet done the vm install to verify fourth is good. I don't yet understand the upload steps which is why they're all local - but I'll/we'll get there.

Our current (testcase 1701) is written for "Erase Disk" however it doesn't always show.

I ran the installer a few times & made notes (largely a comparison between 19.10's install and the manual), right now I have no idea where those notes are (pad.ubuntu.com as I recall, but i'll have to find the email or whatever breadcrumb I left for myself to locate it). I also downloaded existing testcases and then looked at alternate editors as I felt my usual editor would be error prone (I didn't like how it appeared).

Tested on vaio (uefi) & looks good. (for some reason it's grub is reporting 19.04; a qa-test 19.10 install pre-release and I don't know why, but it's my only uefi box and I hadn't noticed this before).

I made it so d755 doesn't see opensuse during update-grub (easy; it only seems to see it if btrfs partition is mounted) & re-ran update-grub and rebooted. Options are Ubuntu, Advanced.., Memtest, Memtest.., wNT/2000/xp alas no bird-logo is there

I didn't notice the humming bird logo on any sorry; looking back on it's there for vaio (uefi), but not on bios d755, d780 or dx6120 (I didn't look on d960 as I'm using it!), but Yes I do have multiple installs of *nix on all except vaio (d755 has ubuntu & opensuse leap; others have multiple versions of Ubuntu).

From what I can see all are set gfxmode=auto (in /boot/grub/grub.cfg) with #GRUB_GFXMODE= lines all commented out in /etc/default/grub which I believe to be defaults.

I've watched the sony vaio ultracrap using the installed up-to-date 19.10 system, but have not noticed any issues with battery condition drop. The device mostly sits unused with occasional checks of battery status, or less occasional use as I dislike the keyboard+touchpad.

(but it could be battery.health issue or yes i lost-track-of-time..)
