What’s inside this release?
- Remove obsolete Verbose ExitBootServices option [tianocore/edk2-platforms@4c8c886]
- Add asset tag support [tianocore/edk2-platforms@6d4fed6]
This is a minor release, but the asset tag functionality is pretty cool. This let’s you set a custom string to be reported via SMBIOS to the booted OS, which you could use for inventory or provisioning requirements.
The tag can also be set programmatically or via the UEFI Shell command line.
Shell> setvar AssetTag -guid CD7CC258-31DB-22E6-9F22-63B0B8EED6B5 -bs -rt -nv =L"ABC123" =0x0000
As always, read the release notes and usual caveats.
