Hello Reboot's... :)




It looking that BOOTICE can deal with management of UEFI startup items (similar to editing the Windows startup configuration file BCD ?). It's looking we can manage multiple UEFI Bootloaders using BOOTICE -> UEFI -> UEFI Boot entry options. Had anybody tried it before ?




I think above UEFI options show only in UEFI Environment ? Can anybody provide English version of above screenshot ?





Next, boot the BootIce software . Select the UEFI card, and select Edit Boot Entries ... Click Add and navigate to \ efi \ boot \ bootx64.efi on your hard drive.



In above screenshot 'Boot Grub2' entry is added in 'UEFI Boot entry configuration file'. But what is 'UEFI Boot entry Configuration file' here ? is it '\efi\boot\bootx64.efi' ?


Can anybody provide some more info/pages related to BOOTICE -> UEFI -> UEFI Boot Entry ?


Thanks & Regards...

I think its purpose is to add an item to the list of BOOT MENU. When you turn on the computer, press the hotkey to enter the BOOT MENU and quickly select to boot into an EFI file.
It also depends on the machine, my computer was never successful using this.
Maybe it's similar to efibootmgr on Linux.

It seems like it can edit the UEFI NVRAM boot entries.


Only seemingly unrelated:





Basically the stupid EFI/UEFI has an area when you can store boot options.

I can confirm that UEFI options do appear in BootIce (English) when running v1.3.3 on Windows 10 x64 booting in UEFI mode.

Sorry to rake this year old post now, but does bootice let you change uefi entry order via command line???

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: uefi, bootice, efi, grub2, secure uefi boot, refind, clover, bootx64.efi
