Re: [PATCH] UefiPayloadPkg/PlatformBootManager: Connect console after EndOfDxe

Patrick Rudolph

Hi Sunny,
none of the other packages are doing this before EndOfDxe. And there's
no point in having trusted console as earlier as possible, as nothing
is displayed in PlatformBootManagerBeforeConsole().
Please explain your use case. I don't see one here.

Kind Regards,
Patrick Rudolph

Hi Patrick,

I'm not familiar with UefiPayloadPkg. However, since we may want to enable the trusted console as earlier as possible, you may still need to keep the PlatformConsoleInit() call at the beginning of PlatformBootManagerBeforeConsole() to support the platform that has trusted/on-board Consoles.

Currently the console is connected before EndOfDxe causing OptionsROMs to be loaded, but their drivers aren't used and thus no GOP is installed.

To make use of 3rdparty OptionROMs connect the console after EndOfDxe.

Tested on Intel CFL board using Nvidia Quadro GPU.
