Abstract: Device vendors have redefined the interface between the OS and platform firmware. The interface, defined in various UEFI specifications, replaces the older Basic Input/Output System (BIOS). Old BIOS computers need to be replaced, and newer UEFI computers should switch to UEFI native mode for several technical advantages: Secure Boot; GUID Partition Table (GPT) Support; Platform and Architecture Independence; Consistent Variables and Services; Improved Boot Performance.
