    Default Re: ASRock 970 Pro3 R2.0 UEFI Built-In EFI Shell Missing

    To gain access to the UEFI Shell, you first need the UEFI Shell binary "Shellx64.efi"

    Download Link to one that I know works for me is:
    <a href="">Direct Download</a>

    <a href="">Projec t Page</a>

    <a href=""> How to install, invoke, and other good info.</a>

    To install the shell, download the shell.efi file. Rename it Shellx64.efi and place it in either the root directory of your EFI FAT32 partition, or within a directory named "Boot" within a directory named "EFI" within the root directory.

    <efi root="">[UEFI Root]/Shellx64.efi


    <efi root="">[UEFI Root]/EFI/Boot/Shellx64.efi

    Launch the shell via the "Launch EFI Shell from filesystem device" menu option.

    Once the shell is loaded. Use the bcfg command to make a persistent boot option for the shell to ease its launch.

    bcfg usage:
    bcfg <boot|driver><arg>(-v)

    Example for creating boot entry.
    bcfg boot add 2 FS0:\EFI\Boot\Shellx64.efi "UEFI Shell"
    <bcfg>(bcfg): The command for editing UEFI boot and driver entries
    <boot>(boot): Indicates you want to Add/Modify/Delete Boot entries
    <add>(add): Indicates you want to add an entry
    (2): Indicates that this entry will be number 2, or the third entry. (starts at 0) Note: This will not overwrite or delete other entries. It will slip in place pushing entries 2 and above back a space. Making 2 become 3 and so on. Entries 0 and 1 will not be altered.
    <fs0:\...\shellx64.efi>(FS0:\...\Shellx64.efi): This is the UEFI path to the file to be launched at invocation. In this case the shell. FS0:\ is the partition that it resides within. The syntax is very similar to DOS.
    ("UEFI Shell"): Is the name of of the entry that will show up in the boot menu.

    For more info, run this command in the shell.
    bcfg -v -b

    Note: This info is for UEFI v2.0, if you have v1.0 you will need an earlier version of the shell file.
