Subject Re: BOOTIA32.efi

\EFI\BOOT\bootia32.efi is the first file executed by a 32-bit UEFI system. What it contains depends on where it has come from.
For instance, in Windows, the bootia32.efi and bootx64.efi files will be equivalent to bootmgr and try to boot Windows. On a UEFI linux OS, these files will probably contain grub2.
There is a \EFI\boot\bootx64.efi file in E2B, but this is a 64-bit UEFI memory test (nothing to do with E2B functions).
If you booted Clover, it will be looking for 32-bit \EFI\*.efi files - what OS are you trying to boot? What are you trying to achieve?

P.S. Clover is no good for the HP - Clover is useful for booting in MBR mode and then running EFI payloads. Your HP only boots in UEFI mode - so you just need a bootia32.efi file on a FAT32 partition which is what a .imgPTN file will make for you (IF the source supports 32-bit UEFI booting).
