What is EFI file?

An .EFI file is a software interface file that defines a standard specification to establish an interface between the platform firmware and the operating system running on the system. The EFI file replaces the BIOS firmware and provides two types of services, namely: the boot services and the run-time services for the system. The boot services provides firmware interface for the platform and associated hardware accessories connected to the system, such as the bus service, file services, and devices. The run-time services provide services such as data and time settings while the OS is running on the system.

Programs that support EFI file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the EFI file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the EFI file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the EFI file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the EFI file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the EFI file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the EFI file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
