All right, forgive this stupid question, but I've looks around and really don't understand.  From what I can tell, you guys are getting long hex identifier strings for your hardware (VGA, LAN, Audio), and adding those to your boot plist.  Why?  What does this accomplish?  Does it make said hardware work all the time, without the annoyances like breaking my X1950Pro driver every time I update my Hackintosh?

Another question, do you actually have to customize the EFI bootloader that gets installed, or is that all handled from modifying the boot plist?
