UEFI Best Practice information

Robert was looking for UEFI info:






Do we have any best practices documents with regard to UEFI setting ?

We know from the past that there are recommendations for ESX in the classic BIOS.


I’m looking for any best practice info with UEFI for ESX, RHEL & WIN 2008R2.

Would appreciate any pointers.




Input from Radi:




Hi Robert,


We do have some in the UEFI  release notes and the UEFI user guide.


For instance when you install Win 2008 R2, you should disable optimized boot in UEFI mode. You should have optimized boot enabled for ESXi installations.

If you have something particular in mind that is not covered there, please share.
