Firmware settings for UEFI boot

The following settings may need to be set to enable UEFI booting on this server in a MAAS environment:

* Devices and I/O Ports -> Enable/Disable Adapter Option ROM Support:
Enable all UEFI options, disable all Legacy options except Video.
* System Settings -> Legacy Support:
Disable everything except Legacy Thunk Support

Some of these changes may not be needed ultimately but they were the settings used during certification.
