You need to use
https://edk2.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/edk2/trunk/edk2/EdkShellBinPkg/FullShell/X64/Shell_Full.efi
as ShellBinPkg shell will work only in 2.2+ systems (most of the Arch
Lenovo UEFI users reported ShellBinPkg Shell.efi as not working. More
info at http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=28690732
.

Are you sure this will work without cd'ing into fso: first? Did you
test this in real hardware like ENV (like DUET
