If you find this Web page useful, please consider making a small donation to help keep this site up and running. Beginning with version 0.2.7, r EFInd has been able to load EFI drivers, and as of version 0.4.0, it has shipped with some EFI filesystem drivers.
If you install r EFInd via the script or by installing an RPM or Debian package in a Linux distribution, the script should install the driver that matches the filesystem on which your kernels are stored automatically, with a couple of important caveats: Note: If you want to use the drivers with a Mac, be sure to use at least version 0.4.3.
Earlier versions were incompatible with the Mac's EFI 1.x firmware.
The Tiano Core-compiled versions are fine, and the GNU-EFI-built binaries are fine on a 32-bit Virtual Box.Chances are good that a few such drivers are available, unknown to me, and more may become available in the future.If you happen to have a device and need support for it under EFI, searching for drivers is certainly worth doing.It's possible to use EFI shell commands to give the ISO-9660 driver access to the shell device, but this causes the El Torito access to go away, which means that anything loaded from the El Torito image (such as r EFInd) is likely to malfunction.Also, some EFI implementations include ISO-9660 drivers, so you might not need a separate ISO-9660 driver if you're building a disc for a particular computer.
