I can see the entry (actually the whole menu) in the output. So this whole thing
is in an nvram on the mobo? This explains how the info survives the removal of
the media. Is the info entered by the fedora installer or by the efi BIOS itself?

BTW, installing f20 on a USB disk booted OK, I still need to see why the SD card
install is failing. I will repeat it, it takes about 10 hours on this slow media :-(
