On HP boxes, you can do "errdump mca" (for zx1 boxes) or
"errdump all mca" (for sx1000 boxes) at the EFI shell.
If you can boot a working kernel, salinfod will also
extract the logs and drop them in /var/log/salinfo.
There's a decoded/ directory, which is basically the
same output as "errdump", and a raw/ directory, which
contains binary files that can be run through a decoder
(which is unfortunately proprietary).

Type "acpiconfig" at the EFI shell prompt.
