WIKI/DOC: Update UEFI installation instructions

Details

    Description

      Hello.

      I'm trying to install Funtoo, but not having much success. I want to use Pure UEFI or rEFInd to dualboot between Linux and Windows 7 (at least, maybe two more OSes).

      I found the information on the Funtoo wiki seems somewhat incomplete/outdated. I collected some links that may be useful as sources to add more info about it.

      I used UEFI with CSM, it seems to cause issues:

      (can't I make the MSR partition bigger? I want to store my kernels, rescue booting and other stuff. I would like to have 2GB or maybe more)
