AMI Provisioning™ integrates firmware configuration, firmware update, hardware diagnostics and pre-OS applications in a Unified EFI (UEFI) environment. When combined with Aptio® UEFI firmware and AMIDiag™ for UEFI diagnostics, AMI Provisioning greatly simplifies system maintenance and configuration.
Embed Utilities With The System Replaces the "recovery DVD" with an always available pre-boot management tool. AMI Provisioning can be executed from the BIOS flash ROM, NAND flash, on-board USB devices, protected hard disk partitions and OEM proprietary storage.
Power Pre-Boot GUI Move away from text-based applications to an intuitive graphical interface. AMI Provisioning presents a consistent interface to the user, with OEM branding via customizable themes.
OS-Independent Firmware Updates Executing BIOS and firmware updates in pre-boot eliminates OS compatibility issues, and allows customers to recover in situations where the OS cannot boot.
Simplify Pre-OS Configuration Provide a GUI alternative to the text based "legacy BIOS" setup menu, taking advantage of UEFI standards.
Integrated Diagnostics Make system diagnostics readily available to the user. AMIDiag for UEFI integrates into the AMI Provisioning solution, enabling full system tests even when the OS is not functional. Avoid the cost of system returns due to trivial issues.
Standards Based AMI Provisioning is built on the industry-backed UEFI specification, simplifying usage across multiple platforms and market segments. Users experience a consistent management interface on AMI’s Aptio solution or other UEFI implementations.
Easily Extensible Create a framework for integrating new applications that leverage the same GUI and customized OEM themes.
