I thought that if UEFI is enabled in the bios (you didn't select some
legecy mode...) the installer would detect and use it.   I managed to
do that accidentally on one machine that I was setting up as a master
image and then found that at the time, neither clonezilla nor rear
could make a bootable copy.  I think they've both been fixed since.
There may be some additional problem with grub and /boot on a >2TB
partition, though. Mine wasn't that big.
