Isn't that exactly what I've been saying in my OP (2nd paragraph)? The OP is certainly dated, but misleading? Go rinse your mouth with soap... :)

No sweat. BTW, you did well to draw attention to http://www.rodsbooks.com, a fine resource for this type of topic, e.g. the rEFInd boot manager.

No. You must switch off Secure Boot in order for her to boot.
