What is EFI file?
EFI file is an extension on the Windows operating system. It is used for installing drivers on some computers, which doesn't allow the installation of the driver by itself. Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) is an interface built into the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) of many computers that allows drivers to be installed by another device that does not contain a driver file on its own. It was created by Intel Corporation in 1990 and it became popular in 1999 with NT4 operating system; however, it wasn't available in XP since Vista release. Soon after, Microsoft released Vista with EFI support and accordingly Windows 7 came out with EFI support as well.
