Description

I get "failed to allocate buffer" when selected the "Chainload disk0" option in boot loader after I installed OpenIndiana 20191105 to disk in VirtualBox 6.0.14 on OpenIndiana.

Works fine in legacy BIOS mode.

See the attached screenshot.

BIOS and UEFI are different in that regard, UEFI needs full path to file we are chainloading. This means that the variable chain_disk should be set based on if we are running on uefi or not. We can script that of course.
