Running a self-build kernel on a modern machine includes using a UI akin time-travel to the days I first used a (Z80 based Xerox) computer.

And a little cursing followed by turning off "boot a Microsoft OS" inside UEFI BIOS (only after switching to systemd-bootloader).

It's been a timeconsuming "hobby" to re-learn on current Linux to complete tasks that were trivial once.
