1.2.2. Itanium Systems — EFI System Partition

When partitioning your hard drive for Linux, you must create a system partition that is FAT16 (VFAT) formatted and has a mount point of /boot/efi/. This partition contains the installed Linux kernel(s) as well as the ELILO configuration file (elilo.conf). The elilo.conf file contains a list of kernels from which you can boot your system.
