Hello,

On a new ThinkPad (X280) with an SSD drive after loggin in as root and
typing 'setup' the following warning is displayed:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
NO EFI SYSTEM PARTITION DETECTED

This machine appears to be using EFI/UEFI, but no EFI System Partition
was found. You'll need to make an EFI System Partition in order
to boot from the hard drive. To do this, leave 'setup' and use 'cgdisk'
to make a 100MB partion of type EF00.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Is this necessary? Can it be ignored?

Normally I install the bootloaded on MBR with LILO.

Many thanks for any advise.

To boot the way you are used to you will probably need to go into the
computers CMOS setup and change the settings to legacy boot.

Yes, thanks! Setting the boot priority to Legacy First eliminated the error
message in the setup procedure.
