updating/installing grub might solve the lack of grub boot screen. I
would use the 'dry-run' option..os-prober is the part that looks for all
the other OS's installed so grub can build a multiboot scenario.

Debian has no issues with uefi, at least stretch.

ps multiboot is the old way, if you have the hardware, virtualization
works great. I use Debian with Win7 as a guest..runs fine..caveat, I
have an OEM Win7 disk.,
