So you had to turn of SecureBoot to boot the DVD? Or just changed the 
boot order?

If turn off of SecureBoot, did turning it on post-install still let it boot?

Evidently, note to selves, don't nuke the /boot/efi partition? (In which 
Ubuntu is probably putting keys for the UEFI / SecureBoot to find at 
startup? [Or turn off SecureBoot and live with it that way if you don't 
want the extra partition?]
