It's taken me some time to get any shots that are readable -- I don't have a very steady hand. :-( Anyway, I haven't touched them. They're just as my phone camera produced them. Because of their size, I've packed them all up. I'm afraid I don't know their exact order. Hopefully you'll know by looking at them. :-) They're located at: bsdforge.com/efi-memmap.tar.xz Thank you very much for all your time, and attention to this, Dexuan!
