The UEFI standard states that BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI is only for use on removable media and that an OS installing to an internal disk is supposed to put its boot loader in its own directory, and the firmware must boot said loader when instructed to via EFI variables.

If there are broken systems out there that don't follow the standard, we would need more details on which ones, how common they are, and confirmation that they are indeed broken, and do not obey the efi boot variables.
