 +===== UEFI Firmware (versus BIOS) =====
 +Just as with many modern PCs, a current Shuttle XPC does away completely with a BIOS, but uses a pure UEFI firmware instead. The terms UEFI firmware and BIOS are widely used synonymously,​ but hardware initialising is now performed by the UEFI. Users might not even notice, but the operating system must be installed and executed in UEFI mode. UEFI creates a GUID Partition Table (GPT) on the system partition instead of a Master Boot Record (MBR). A PC running pure UEFI firmware alone must have a 64-bit operating system installed.
