In continuation of the topic considered in the , I want to offer a practically verified solution. I.e., how to successfully install the DCO-8.1 on UEFI-based systems (physical or virtual). Moreover, the topic appeared a little unexpectedly and it has the right to exist: it's no secret that many modern servers/systems already contain NVMe SSD storage with a huge performance of the disk subsystem. And as we all know, the OS booting from such storage is only possible with the support UEFI.
As a proof I'll show a couple of screenshots, for example, here is the partitions table of the DCO-server with UEFI-partition:
And this is a screenshot of the status of the DCO-server from the same webmin-console with the normal status Running:
I hope this will be useful and as usual, questions are welcome.

Thanks a lot spezialist. I will definitely try that in my next installation 😀. I believe it is just time matter before we are explicitly required to choose UEFI in our installation

Hi Winnie Chau,
As I answered in the previous topic , DCO-8.1 can be installed on any server/system, if only it was possible to switch to the legacy BIOS mode. And here I wanted to show the case where this is not possible, either because the server's firmware configuration, or due to the use as a storage fast NVMe SSD drives.
Still new UEFI mode used very often, and it is necessary to be considered.
