Found it! This belongs into boot/grub/grub.cfg
Preseed EFI boot works now :-))
Thanks for the support!

My current plan is:
1. delete sda4 and sda6 (assuming, windows don't really need them?
2. resize sda3 (Windows C:) to about 50G (is this enough?)
3. move+resize sda5 to the end of sda3
4. Create ubuntu partitions as usual.
Will the d-i partitioner properly shrink the partition? Or will I need to
defragment the disk before shrinking it?

Should I leave it mounted during install or should I umount it?
Why is it mounted at all?
