What are the main details on how Windows interact with EFI?
I can understand that Windows boot loader is a EFI app. But what else? what occurs after the boot stage?
Can ACPI and EFI coexist? if not - then am I correct that MS has the full replacement for acpi.sys which uses EFI tables instead of ACPI ones?
Is there a custom HAL for EFI? for things like, say, EFI's NVRAM real-time clock access?
