Clone edk2 and copy the Include folder which contains headers files needed to compile freertos application.

cd path-to-uefi_freertos_beagleboard/freertos_test/Demo/OMAP3_BeagleBoard_GCC

rtosdemo.elf file will be generated in the current directory.

Now to compile the osloader UEFI application.

cp -r path-to-uefi_freertos_beagleboard/osloader path-to-edk2
cd path-to-edk2/BeagleBoardPkg

Edit BeagleBoardPkg.dsc file and add osloader/osloader.inf to the bottom of the file i.e. into [Components.common] section.

Below command will generate the needed efi file.
