The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is a specification that defines a standard interface between an operating system and platform firmware. UEFI is a more secure replacement for the older basic input/output system (BIOS). Most UEFI systems and motherboards that support both, UEFI booting and legacy BIOS booting, will still work with legancy BIOS controllers. Areca has supported both legacy BIOS and UEFI on its 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s SAS RAID adapters.
