I just ran into this on a new EFI BIOS machine. It's not supported so maybe in a few months?

While I understand how urgent this reply is to you, I'm having to guess it's the same issue I encountered last month.

Install to cheap flash drive instead

I like those $10-12 16GB thumb drives, particularly the very small ones that look like little black buttons, which are great for low profile use on a laptop. Some thumbdrives have problems taking a LIVE type install but will do the "frugal" or standard install, if some distro's version of "parted" is used to set it up first with at least a root / partition also flagged as boot, and a swap partition. If you want to have a LIVE USB thumbdrive installation, add persistence and use pendrivelinux Universal USB Installer, which seems to get by even problematic thumbdrive installs some of the distro install programs won't.

Alternately, I have a friend who fried his windows installation and groused for 3 days about how much effort it was to get it all back the way he wanted, all due to trying a side by side install of a Linux distro. You might consider using Oracle's VM program and run the Linux in it for awhile till you decide if you want it or to try another.
