  grub-efi 32 bits fails on 64bits computer

Status in “grub2” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On a 64bits EFI computer (with GPT disk) with pre-installed 64bits
  Windows7. Laptop ASUS N76VZ-V2G-T1002V.

  1) Installed Ubuntu 12.04 32bits in dual-boot. Result:
  http://paste.ubuntu.com/1069331 (see the 3 efi files on sda1). At
  reboot, GRUB menu does not appear, even when setting the EFI BIOS on
  /efi/ubuntu/boot.efi  , or /efi/ubuntu/grubia32.efi .

  2) Removed the Ubuntu32bits partitions, and replaced it by Ubuntu
  64bits. Result: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1072125 (see the new
  /efi/ubuntu/grubx64.efi file). At reboot, the GRUB menu appears and
  allows to boot Ubuntu.
