How to access to EFI

Hi to all, I'm new in this forum.

Is posible to enter to the EFI menu without booting the server ? from the console ?

Thanks
Rodrigo

Hello Rodrigo,

no this is not possible, the EFI is a pre-OS/pre-boot environment. Once the OS is loaded you cannot access it anymore.

Not sure Kris or I understand the question.

You certainly can access EFI commands from the console BEFORE boot time. There are menus and a shell prompt.

After boot time, no.

There are series of hpux commands to access EFI disk space after boot, however. Commands such as "efi_cp".

Re: How to access to EFI

what i meant to say is that the 'EFI menu' (as mentioned in the question) is not accesible once booted in the OS.

Their are commands available and the EFI partition can be mounted from within the OS i.e. with 'mountvol drive: /S' under Windows.
