    Hi,

    I've been going through the Dell L702X firmware (Look at the bottom for URL) trying to find out how to enable UEFI boot, etc.

    It should be possible because there's even an EFI shell built into the firmware! (I just can't get to it)

    So far, I extracted the WPF file by running WinFlash and browsing to %TEMP%\WinFlash.
    I then extracted that using the Phoenix tool which left me with a file around 4MB in dump.
    I then fed this file back into the Phoenix tool which dumped all the rom files for the bios.
    Inside a file (73DAB30F-3F9C-4160-B064-439CE16C3EDE_1_1086.ROM) I saw the strings for things like F11 - EFI Shell.

    How can I enable all these options?

    The main thing I want to do is UEFI boot.


    The firmware is here: (Replace <dot> with .)

    Thanks,
