So the ISO only “fails” (somehow?) on old Macs, is that correct?

If it’s “just” about old Macs, that’s not a 1.0 blocker for me (though
it’s something we should fix.)

If the issue might be broader, we need more data to estimate the scope
of the problem (your table mentioned UEFI vs. “legacy” boot and Lenovo
laptops, which I’m not sure how to interpret.)
