  • http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/OVMF
  • Gerd Hoffmann’s OVMF builds: https://www.kraxel.org/repos/
    • These images are automatically built and track the latest OVMF code in the EDK II tree.
    • Some of these builds include a seabios CSM and can boot non-UEFI “legacy” operating systems. (Note: seabios is GPLv3 licensed.)
    • If your OS doesn’t work with RPM repositories, then you can manually download and decompress the RPM files under jenkins/edk2
