HP Integrity Servers - Adding a HPUX Boot Option to EFI Shell for Integrity Servers
How to add a HPUX Boot option to the boot menu of EFI?
Itanium Systems — The EFI Shell
After you install the HPUX operating system on an Itanium, you must have a basic understanding of the EFI Shell, what it does, and the information it can provide. The EFI Shell is a console interface used to launch applications and utilities, load EFI protocols and device drivers, and execute simple scripts. It is similar to a DOS console and can only access media that is FAT16 (VFAT) formatted. The EFI Shell also contains common utilities that can be used on the EFI system partition. These utilities include edit, type, cp, rm, and mkdir. For a list of utilities and other commands, type help at the EFI Shell prompt. The EFI Shell contains a boot loader called ELILO. Additional information on EFI can be found at the following URL: http://developer.intel.com/technology/efi/index.htm
This procedure adds a HPUX item to the boot options list.
