    6 This image, which you can mount as FAT filesystem or open in 7-zip, contains
    7 the following data:
    8 o The NTFS and exFAT UEFI drivers from EfiFs (https://github.com/pbatard/efifs).
    9   These are the \EFI\Rufus\[exfat|ntfs]_[ia32|x64|arm|aa64].efi files, which are
   10   identical to the v1.7 EfiFs binaries published at https://efi.akeo.ie.
   11 o The UEFI:NTFS binaries (https://github.com/pbatard/uefi-ntfs), which were
   12   compiled using Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition.
   13   These are the \EFI\Boot\boot[ia32|x64|arm|aa64].efi files.
   14 
   15 The FAT partition was created on Debian GNU/Linux using the following commands
   16   dd if=/dev/zero of=uefi-ntfs.img bs=512 count=1024
   17   mkfs.vfat -n UEFI_NTFS uefi-ntfs.img
   18 and then mounting the uefi-ntfs.img image and copying the relevant files.
