JSI Tip 4841. How do I access an EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) partition on an IA64 computer?

To access an EFI partition, open a CMD prompt and type:

mountvol <Drive:> /s

NOTE: The /S switch mounts the EFI System Partition on the specified drive letter.


mountvol X: /s

If you type mountvol, you will see your EFI partition.

NOTE: See tip 2600.
