This e-book presents an outline of recent boot firmware, together with the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and its linked EFI Developer equipment II (EDKII) firmware. The authors have every one made major contributions to advancements in those components. The reader will learn how to use the most recent advancements in UEFI on smooth undefined, together with open resource firmware and open designs. The e-book starts with an exploration of interfaces uncovered to higher-level software program and working structures, and commences to the left of the boot timeline, describing the stream of regular structures, starting with the computing device restart occasion.

Software engineers operating with UEFI will gain drastically from this booklet, whereas particular sections of the booklet tackle subject matters appropriate for a basic viewers: process architects, pre-operating-system program builders, working procedure owners (loader, kernel), self reliant proprietors (such as for plug-in adapters), and builders of end-user functions. As a secondary viewers, undertaking technical leaders or managers can be drawn to this e-book to get a believe for what their engineers are doing.

The reader will locate:

  • An evaluation of UEFI and underlying Platform Initialization (PI) requirements
  • How to create UEFI purposes and drivers
  • Workflow to layout the firmware resolution for a latest platform
  • Advanced usages of UEFI firmware for defense and manageability
