Certainly not grub, which doesn't support UEFI. Reassigning to grub2.

affects: grub (Ubuntu) → grub2 (Ubuntu)

I can't really understand what you are saying. Can you try to describe the boot menu you see better? Perhaps a screen shot?

Changed in grub2 (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

This has been the same menu since efi was entered making it harder and harder to figure out what version of ubuntu is on the disk/pendrive without firing it up further.

Simply adding Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Ubuntu 16.10 Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS etc somewhere on this menu would save a lot of time and effort.

Ahh, that has to do with how the cd itself is prepared.
