The --efi option is not need when using a live ISO that has it
in it.

My current favorite ISO is Fedora-Live-Xfce-x86_64-23-10.iso
which does boot from UEFI.

And, the full install of the above to a flash drive also
will boot from UEFI. I find that holding down the "esc"
key at boot will get your the boot over ride on "some"

Also, it boots from Apple MAC's if you hold down the "option" key
(not the flower key) when it is booting. This will give you
the choice of what boot device. (Thank you Noah!).
