Thanks a lot, this tip works nice too on a Apple Intel Mac Mini hardly converted to Debian.
I use the refind debian package instead of the zip.

Thanks, this allowed me to set up EFI boot with Debian on a 2017 Macbook Pro:

  1. sudo apt-get install refind
  2. sudo mvrefind /boot/efi/EFI/refind /boot/efi/EFI/BOOT
