Hi Bowen and Brian,

thank you for your information!

Bowen,Do you mean that we can boot to EFI shell environment and boot a SUSE=
 OS?I do not try this before but I installed a EFI aware OS(vista 64bit) su=
ccessfully in the DUET environment,the key of the problem is that we need a=
 real HW paltform(motherboard or a system) to test the driver.

Bowen and Brian,do you know such a platform which meet my requirment?

thanks!
