A DVD drive/boot has never been needed (obviously you need an existing install if you're not booting from DVD).

 

unzip EFI to somelder (eg. "/iamefi")

reboot into single user mode (-s)

*do not* remount the filesystem

run the efi install script

 

I did that and it crashed my os

That works 100% for MBR: no dvd boot, no secondary install necessary. If you have an existing MBR install you can easily add MBR EFI <period>

 

GUID is another story, you will need to perform the dd operations from a second drive/installation if not use a DVD as it ejects the drive at one point
