EFI Linux Booting

Fix for typing misses

Boot Runner 3.1 also includes a fix for some customers experiences missed keyboard presses when entering in keyboard and mouse presses at the login window. The issue was causes by Boot Runner issuing a mouse press to bring the login window to the front. The mouse press sometimes causes keyboard entries to be missed. The mouse press now only happens a single time when the login window is first shown.
