    OC 0.6.7: Unable to add GUI to boot

    This seems trivial task. Prior to OC 0.6.6, I was able to enable GUI at boot just fine. However, I followed the same procedure with 0.6.7 but still have to GUI. It boots with default OC boot loader. Can someone point out what am I missing here. My EFI is attached.
