#1934820 Linux and Windows UEFI boot using Tianocore DUET firmware

Posted by Keshav Amburay on 26 July 2013 - 07:17 PM

Hi guys,             Its been a long time since I interacted with many of you. I just want to say that I won't be updating the DUET git repos often since I now have a native UEFI 2.3.1 system (Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 3254-DAQ). You can find some UEFI related info about my laptop at https://wiki.archlin...e_E430_3254-DAQ . I am not planning to take down the git repos but I suggest compiling your own DUET image if you want to test the latest code. I also suggest trying http://sourceforge.n.../cloverefiboot/ . I believe it might be discussed somewhere in the forum but can't find the thread. I haven't tried it myself but it seems to be updated regularly and has similar goals towards DUET usage.

Copy the oscdimg.exe file into D: . Then type the following commands in Command Prompt. (i) d: (ii) oscdimg -w4 -os -lWin_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660 -m -o -n -pEF -e -bd:\WIN64ISO\efi\microsoft\boot\efisys.bin d:\WIN64ISO d:\Win_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660.iso Replace the "WIN64ISO" folder name by name of the folder where you extracted the Windows Setup disc files. After the process completes, write the Win_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660.iso file to a disc. This disc will not boot in a BIOS system but it will boot in a UEFI system. Note that Windows x64 versions...
