This ebook presents an summary 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 discover ways to use the newest advancements in UEFI on glossy 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 circulation of normal structures, starting with the laptop restart occasion.
Software engineers operating with UEFI will profit tremendously from this ebook, whereas particular sections of the booklet deal with themes proper for a common viewers: process architects, pre-operating-system program builders, working method owners (loader, kernel), autonomous proprietors (such as for plug-in adapters), and builders of end-user functions. As a secondary viewers, venture technical leaders or managers might be attracted to this publication to get a suppose for what their engineers are doing.
The reader will locate:
- An evaluation of UEFI and underlying Platform Initialization (PI) standards
- How to create UEFI purposes and drivers
- Workflow to layout the firmware resolution for a contemporary platform
- Advanced usages of UEFI firmware for defense and manageability
