Grub freezes on Apollo Lake

Hi to everyone. I have problems traying to install Bunsen in Apollo Lake laptop.
Grub has a recognized problem with Apollo Lake processors. The only distro i can start is Ubuntu 18.04. Other distros simply dont start. I have tried with Bunsen Helium and Debian testing and dont start, grub freezes.
In the bios i cant set legacy mode, only UEFI.

I have read that refind loader is compatible. I can start refind using a USB and it detect busen installation in other USB, but when select it freezes. I have tried to add a new menuentry in refind.conf without success.

Seems there are a script called isorespin.sh that convert a grub ISO into refind ISO, but is not Debian compatible.

Any has solved similar problem or have any idea?
Thanks.

It should be possible to install BunsenLabs from the Ubuntu live environment by following this guide:

https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=3800

Once that is done, rEFInd could then be added to get it booting — direct it to /vmlinux & /initrd.img, these are symlinks maintained to the current kernel & initramfs.

Wow! Very interesting! I have never mind use chroot for install a new system. I will try and hope Debian fix the problem soon.
Thanks very much
