Most firmware implementations use the EFI specified
EFI/BOOT/bootia32.efi (and similar) boot paths. Only broken firmware
uses different paths for removable media. In those cases, the user can
add their own startup.nsh.

For the compliant case, selecting "Shell" from the EFI boot menu should
go to the shell.
