About UEFI

UEFI firmware provides several technical advantages over a traditional BIOS system:

  • Ability to boot from large disks (over 2 TiB) with a GUID Partition Table, GPT.
  • CPU-independent architecture
  • CPU-independent drivers
  • Flexible pre-OS environment, including network capability
  • Modular design
