This publication presents an summary of recent boot firmware, together with the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and its linked EFI Developer package II (EDKII) firmware. The authors have each one made major contributions to advancements in those parts. 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 publication 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 movement of regular structures, starting with the computing device restart occasion.

Software engineers operating with UEFI will profit tremendously from this publication, whereas particular sections of the ebook tackle issues suitable for a normal viewers: procedure architects, pre-operating-system program builders, working method proprietors (loader, kernel), self reliant proprietors (such as for plug-in adapters), and builders of end-user functions. As a secondary viewers, venture technical leaders or managers should be attracted to this publication to get a believe for what their engineers are doing.

The reader will locate:

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