    There are a lot of EFI already, especially found at notebooks. Anyway the interface is still boring at most of them.
    If there is a graphical interface or not doesn't depend on if it's EFI already or still BIOS. Asus, for instance, has a graphical interface (Express Gate) and BIOS.

    Andy's tool can decompose Tiano and LZMA compressed EFI. It also can reintegrate modified modules. To mod an existing SLIC is no problem at all, also to introduce one (middleton's code) is possible. The structure of EFI is known already.
    The only problem is Intel. They digitally sign their EFI which makes any modification almost impossible.
