UEFI is a standard firmware interface designed to replace BIOS. Mellanox UEFI Network driver is compliant with UEFI specification version 2.7 and allows boot over network via PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment). This network driver allows remote boot over InfiniBand or Ethernet, or Boot over iSCSI (Bo-iSCSI) in UEFI mode, and also supports the SecureBoot standard.
