Is Deployment Solution 6.9 or 7.x compatible with EFI/UEFI technology?

Resolution

Deployment Solution 6.9 SP6 and CMS/ITMS 7.5 will utilize Microsoft WinPE 4.0 which is compatible with uEFI/EFI systems. 

For earlier versions of Deployment Solution 6.9, some manufacturers have the option to change the uEFI/EFI type BIOS to a legacy mode which may allow WinPE 2.1 to correctly boot. It may also be possible to use the Linux operating system for the pre-boot process to get around uEFI/EFI issues.
