I also wanted to add to this email. It is possible to evaluate EDK2 on ARM platforms for free using the emulation of the BeagleBoard on qEmu.

BeagleBoard on qEmu works such as on real hardware. The same EDK2 firmware image used on the board can boot a Linux kernel on a (simulated) MMC, access the (simulated) display controller on qEmu.


The instructions are here: https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/tianocore/index.php?title=BeagleBoardPkg#Testing_UEFI_on_qEmu

Hi Rafael,


Today there is EDK2 Open Source support for the following low-cost boards:

-          BeagleBoard (testing on revA and xM version) – Cortex A8

-          Samsung Origen – Cortex A9x2


In addition, all the ARM Ltd development boards are supported (ARM Versatile Express and Model), but there are a bit expensive ...


I know some people are working on porting EDK2 on other ARM low-cost boards. But I do not know the plan for them to publish the source to the Open-Source community.

I will be happy to help you to port EDK2 to a new ARM platform board if you are interested.


Kind Regards,

Hi All


I've being studing UEFI for some time, and now I'd like to do some tests with ARM platform.

Can somebody tell me some board model that I can buy to study UEFI at ARM architecture ?


Thanks a lot
