anaconda failed to set new efi boot target

Hi, I've tried to install F19 on my Lenovo S205 without success. I deleted all my old partitions to set a gpt partition system instead of the old mbr. I can set up all requirements to install but when the post-install process starts anaconda fails with the error shown in the title.

All partitions are configured automatically so it's very strange to me. My BIOS is a Phoenix Securecore Tiano with firmware version 4bcn21ww.

When I restart the system I get the grub command-shell mode and don't know how to proceed from there.

anaconda Anaconda failed to set new efi boot target [F19][F19] and grub2-efi issues

Hi, I've tried to install F19 on my Lenovo S205 without success. I deleted all my old partitions to set a gpt partition system instead of the old mbr. I can set up all requirements to install but when the post-install process starts anaconda fails with the error shown in the title.

When I restart the system I get the grub command-shell mode and don't know how to proceed from there.

Edit 2: I found how to go further of grub's command-shell. I used the following commands

set root=(hd0,gpt4)
linuxefi (hd0,gpt2)/vmlinuz-3.9.9(etc) root=/dev/sda4 rhgb quiet syslinux=0
initrdefi (hd0,gpt2)/initramfs-3.9.9(etc)
boot

and the system starts pretty well, but I can't access as root on login (lxde version). I've changed /etc/{passwd,shadow} files so with Ctrl+Alt+F2 I can login as root, but still can't at lxde's login screen.

I tried to generate grub.cgf, there wasn't one, with grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and installed with grub2-install /dev/sda but after a reboot I get a grub command-shell again.

Am I doing something wrong?
