ASUS TP300LD EFI System Partition (ESP)

This repository contains files and folder inside the EFI System Partition (ESP) on my ASUS TP300LD notebook. This ESP contains OpenCore and other UEFI tools to boot to the operating systems I used, which are mainly macOS. Other operating systems, like Windows or Linux, are also supported with this OpenCore configuration.

Disclaimer!

The OpenCore configuration used in this ESP is tightly linked with my machine's BIOS firmware version and configuration. Any attempts to use this ESP —even on the same exact brand, model, hardware configuration, and BIOS firmware version— are not guaranteed to work as well as describe here.
