Bug Description

Since the last update from May 19th, Cubic does not create UEFI iso anymore.
ISO based on Ubuntu 18.04 + add NVidia drivers, repositories and few other non-important packages.

I did not had this bug before, and the original ISO when burned on a USB using dd does not have the issue.
ISO made with previous versions of Cubic did not had this issue either.

I tried to make the ISO from scratch again but it did not work.

Customisations steps :
- Add universe and multiverse repository to APT sources.
- Add this PPA : https://launchpad.net/~baro.app/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
- apt install baro-apt-source
- apt update
- apt install baro

When I check the USB key, I don't see any UEFI partition and no UEFI booting system is found. Tested on various computers with various USB key.

When you get a chance, would you please run Cubic from the command-line by typing `cubic` and pressing enter?

Please attach the terminal output from this command.

I am particularly interested in the portion of the output once you click the "Generate" button.

I ran cubic from command line and chose to build a new iso from existing project.
The created partition has a msdos partition table and does not have any EFI partition.

Hello,
Cubic does not create UEFI in version 2019.05-57.
For the test, I reassembled the original ISO. The system does not boot from the redesigned image in UEFI, but is successfully booted in legacy mode.
What additional information can I add to help solve this problem?
Thanks.

Tayfun,

Would you please open a new bug report with your issue.

Include the OS version you are running Cubic in.
Include the output of `dpkg -l isolinux`.
Specify which original ISO you are trying to customize using Cubic.

When you get a chance, please run Cubic from the command line, and attach the output to the new bug report.

I have the same issue.

The only solution i found, it's to use DVD.

The generate ISO isn't hybrid in UEFI mod.
