    I have a HP ZX2000 Workstation, 1x 900MHz, 512MB Memory, 1x 36GB, DVD
    ROM, ATI Radeon 7000 2D Graphics with EFI V1.10.
    Upon power up I get the message

    Warning[10] BMC System Event Log is full

    before the EFI menu is displayed. I received the box with HP-UX 11i
    V1.6 pre installed and have since reinstalled successfully HP-UX 11i
    V1.6, and then Debian Linux V3.0. An install of SUSE Linux 7.2 has
    subsequently failed processing elilo and I wonder if it has anything
    to do with the EFI warning.

    Are there any online docs for EFI that are suitable for admin level
    rather than driver level developers

    Thanks in advance

    The zx2000 technical reference guide:
    http://h200006.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/lpv00324/lpv0032
    4.pdf
    has a section on EFI.

    The tools to clear the BMC system event log are bundled with the OS; I
    don't think HP released an EFI version (yet).

    There should be no relationship between the SEL being full and elilo
    reporting an error - elilo does not care about the BMC at all.

    You can clear that out by going to the "EFI Shell" on boot
    and typing
