Ubuntu Installer uses wrong bootloader location for USB UEFI installs
On a secure boot pc (secure boot enabled, Ubuntu Desktop 12.10 64bit installed with Win 8), installing from live media Ubuntu 13.04 64 bit desktop to a target thumbdrive (pre partitioned with gpt, and a bootable FAT32 partition 1 of 250M labeled EFI) properly identifies the target's first partition as an "EFI bootable partition" (when "do something else" is selected), but the install
will then mount the ESP off the laptop's hard drive (at /target/boot/efi).
The install creates a grub.cfg file under /target/
The install should use the identified "EFI boot partition" on the target, so the target may boot when first in boot priority, and not touch the hard disk's EFI files. If for any reason a permanent installation is to be made to a USB device, simply select the hard disk's ESP instead of one on the target.
