Also, I already have bootable GNU/Linux kernel on this machine (as part of ubuntu installation). Can I reuse this to boot tinycore or there's some specific patches by TC which would prevent that from working?

As long as your existing installation is (u)efi boot, yes.

You should be looking in here. ;)

Thanks! It's kinda confusing that bigger TinyCP got EFI inside while smaller CP doesn't.

The (u)efi files in TinyCorePure64 are only there so it can be (u)efi booted when burned to cd/dvd.

Since you already have a (u)efi installation, you only need to copy corepure64.gz and vmlinuz64 to a suitable location and add an additional menu item in your boot loader configuration file to get things working.
