Bootstrapping to a computing device is the act of bringing the system up without any manual entry. It may be an antiquated term, but most operating systems are not native software on Intel architecture and cannot bootstrap themselves. BIOS and boot loaders have one main task to do, the bare minimum required to initialize enough hardware, and then get out of the way for the more robust operating system to take over. This paper discusses how to optimize the bootstrapping process to improve the users’ initial exposure to your system using the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) 2.0 framework.
