Beyond BIOS: Book From Intel Press

Just received my copy of Beyond BIOS: Implementing the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface with Intel's Framework. This is written by three of the regular contributors to USWG and PIWG from Intel, Vincent Zimmer (PIWG, Security SubTeam, Network Sub-Team), Mike Rothman (USWG, Configuration Sub-Team) and Bob Hale (Configuration Sub-Team), so I end up talking with them a lot. I haven't read it in detail, but a lot of the content is a recap of the UEFI specification or the Intel Framework Architecture Specification or, in a few cases, the old EFI 1.10 Driver Writer's Guide. The pictures are mostly upgraded ones from those documents, although the ones for the PCI stuff are a lot better than the original docs. More later, after I've had a chance to read more of it. Tim
