Hardware, Embedded Systems "Some of my recent time has been devoted to making our boot media more Mac friendly, which has entailed rather a lot of rebooting. This would have been fine, if tedious, except that some number of boots would fall over with either a clearly impossible kernel panic or userspace segfaulting in places that made no sense. Something was clearly wrong. Crashes that shouldn't happen are generally an indication of memory corruption. The question is how that corruption is being triggered. Hunting that down wasn't terribly easy." Very interesting - and, unlike what the title suggest, not particularly related to the secure boot stuff.

UEFI was actually developed for HP and their Itanium servers. I used it sparingly back in the early 2002s. I can confirm that it was a piece of absolute crap in its initial forms (it would lose saved settings for no apparent), but the one we have nowadays is absolutely awesome.

I wonder if this is just the EFI for that specific version or the mac or if it is the same across the board.

Unless they have the hardware to test it its a crapshoot.
