A broken backup GPT is not supposed to stop EFI from finding its partition
and running its architecture specific start-up program.

But it becomes annoying when another partition shall be created for
a read-write filesystem to carry the user's extra data.

(With Debian and Fedora ISOs it's even worse. They carry a MBR partition
 table and GPT header blocks, which are tehrfore invalid. One has to zap
 them before letting fdisk create a new MBR partition.)

Have a nice day :)
