My setup looks like this

/dev/sda1 -> /boot/efi EFI System
/dev/sda2 -> /boot ext2
/dev/sda3 -> / crypt/btrfs

I tried to use gummiboot with gummiboot install /boot/efi

# gummiboot install --path /boot/efi
Copied /usr/lib/gummiboot/gummibootx64.efi to /boot/efi/EFI/gummiboot/gummibootx64.efi.
Copied /usr/lib/gummiboot/gummibootx64.efi to /boot/efi/EFI/Boot/BOOTX64.EFI.
Created EFI boot entry "Linux Boot Manager".

So all seems fine, right? (or do i need to install gummiboot it directly to boot?)

# efibootmgr 
BootCurrent: 0001
Timeout: 1 seconds
BootOrder: 0000,0002,0001,0003,0006
Boot0000* Linux Boot Manager
Boot0001* Fedora
...

That means on bootup I should get gummiboot/nothing showing up. But the system does not but throws me back into the EFI firmware.

I can not really pinpoint where it fails, or which quirk I need in order to fix it, or even how to diagnose this any further.

My main issue was that I did lack a entry under /boot/efi/loader/entries/ as described here http://www.rodsbooks.com/efi-bootloaders/gummiboot.html
