EFI

hpux.efi is the HP-UX-specific operating system loader utility for bootstrap. It is a native efi(4) application that can be run on the Itanium IA-64 platform

GSP
***
The Guardian Service Processor (GSP) is a built-in processor on most HP 9000 systems, such as the L-Class and N-Class, that can be used for either local or remote system administration functions

Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference
