#2051508 [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

Posted by bs0d on 13 August 2014 - 10:27 PM

// My opinion to OZM as UEFI developer: storing bootloader in firmware is a bad idea.// I do know why it's done like this by QUO people, but for normal boards it's fully useless and makes no sence. Its not a bootloader, it just adds functionality to the firmware to boot os x naitively like a driver does. its designed to run either from the firmware or from media such as a hard drive using bcfg to add.

you maybe able to read them directly from the cards this would also permit reading cards that haven't posted. since usually only 1 video bios can be active in the legacy region. most of the boot loaders have code for retrieving the rom directly from cards, this should be possible with a kext,

you can mix both methods also.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that this dumps the native tables from BIOS and not the tables injected by the boot loader. some 'bootloaders' also update the legacy regions for ACPI and DMI so the correct tables will be dumped.

you can place a Defaults.plist file in /EFI/Quo and it will take precedence of any found in firmware

Too bad that UEFI is not really open source, because then you could patch everything Clover does now from within the UEFI BIOS and load boot.efi. Without the need to reproduce the whole freaking code base. This is also why my bets are on Coreboot.org. I want that to mature so that we can start doing what had to be done in the first place. Whats this then http://tianocore.sou...e.net/wiki/EDK2

Its chosing some external disk you have that contains a /EFI/QUO folder delete that and boot without that drive connected and /EFI/QUO will be created on an internal drive. and that should then appear in this log line instead of your external drive. Found Storage PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1C,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x5,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/VenHw(CF31FAC5-C24E-11D2-85F3-00A0C93EC93B,80)/?/HD(1,GPT,C0379A4E-B0EF-46E6-9913-D6C4237F319E,0x800,0x100000) The thinking is ..... if you make a mistake with a file that gets loaded from the internal disk, you can plug in an external drive with an /EFI/QUO folder which will take precendce of the internal drive and hopefully let you boot. It should create and use /EFI/QUO folder on your first internal disk's EFI System Partition, thats its normal location.

hi truesoldier. as you can see i have both windows 8.1 and mavericks 10.9.3 working on different ssd.i have to use f12 boot menu selection to switch from one to another. from mac system preferences i don't see my windows disk (startup volume).i had to install windows by disconnecting all the other ssd otherwise i couldn't start with the installation (error 0x80004005). this using both dvd or usb installation disk of windows 8.1 update1 msdn edition.  Blame Microsoft for this oversight, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 all suffer from this issue when more than 1 GPT disk is present on system. It cannot handle multiple ESP partitions, although part of the specifications.

copy bootmgfw.efi from install.wim to the usb stick, and place in the existing folder /Efi/Microsoft/Boot

 partitiondxe its unneeded in normal situations,its only for hibryd mbr/gpt disks. Actually the modiffied PartitionDxe is only needed for Booting from Optical Discs aka 10.6.3 DVD

@all from a legal position there was no way it could have shipped with firmware containing code to circumvent protection. a lot of products receive launch day updates, due to the tight schedules involved with manufacturing and shipping times. @6rollo6, some panic logs will help... did u try without the FW audio ?
