    Hi there,
    I upgraded the UEFI BIOS to version 1.06 as described here.
    As shown in the UEFI Shell console, t seems that UEFI BIOS 1.06 is based on UEFI Specification version 2.40.
    As mentioned here,
    Version 2.5 of the UEFI specification introduces the UEFI HTTP Boot feature. You can use the basic UEFI HTTP Boot client to chainload iPXE from an HTTP server, eliminating the need for a separate TFTP server in your boot infrastructure.
    1. Could you please advise if UEFI BIOS Version 1.06 supports HTTP Boot?
    2. If it doesn't, are there plans to provide an upgrade that supports it?
    3. Has anyone managed to do this? Is there any documentation?
    4. The latest UEFI Specification is Version 2.7. Are there any plans to provide a UEFI firmware binary that supports this version?

    - Shyam
