I was unaware of the dos-centric nature of EFI, and that link
definitely was informational.

had is as follows:
1. A user writes and SD card image to an SD card for use with a
2. user boots Minnowboard Max with the SD card installed
4. in the firmware, the user needs to create a boot option for the SD
My problem, was step 4; I couldn't find a tutorial for creating a boot
option for a pre-installed SD Card.
