Intel Document: Basic Instructions for Using EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface)

We use EFI to update the BIOS and other firmware components on Intel Server Systems and Intel Server Boards.

To work with the EFI shell we sometimes need to plug in a USB flash drive or run other commands that are not so obvious.

The mount command:

  • map –r [Enter]

Then to choose the flash drive:

  • fs0: [Enter]

Off we go to run our updates whether in the root of the flash drive or in a subfolder.
