The sanboot command is not yet supported on UEFI platforms (unless
something has happened in the last few days that I haven't noticed).

If you look carefully at the error page you're getting you'll see it
links to null_sanboot.c, which is just a no-operation wrapper until
someone finds time to implement it.
