At first, grub is now required to boot Linux.
OK, I will add Grub to my config. Can you provide some pointers on how to
generate the required files? It looks like I need grubaa64.efi and maybe a
In the second, all boot entries are always hardcoded even before grub
integrated. Since someone may not have serial port to monitor, I have to
create all boot entries by default. It could avoid hikey becoming brick by
accident. But developer can change it. The key is 'autoboot' that you could
find it in the wiki of hikey UEFI.
@ enable autoboot that will create all boot entries and boot automatically.
#sudo fastboot oem autoboot 1
@ disable autoboot
#sudo fastboot oem autoboot 0
If you disable the autoboot, you could add any boot entry by UEFI boot
manager as you wish.
At last, don't change HiKey.dsc for creating any boot entry. It's not good.
Got it :) Hopefully I can use 96boards/edk2 unmodified, if I can manage to
setup grub correctly that is.
