Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. type efi_guid=record
  2.               data1:dword;
  3.               data2:word;
  4.               data3:word;
  5.               data4:array[1..8] of byte;
  6.               end;
  7. const efi_loaded_image_protocol_guid:efi_guid=($5B1B31A1,$9562,$11D2,($8E,$3F,$00,$A0,$C9,$69,$72,$3B));
It seems have no problem in pascal,why these pascal code cannot be compiled and show the error that Syntax error, "identifier" expected but "ordinal const" found?

The proper way to initialize a record is to name each field:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. const efi_loaded_image_protocol_guid:efi_guid=(data1: $5B1B31A1; data2:$9562; data3: $11D2; data4: ($8E,$3F,$00,$A0,$C9,$69,$72,$3B));

A nice shortcut if you use instead the inbuilt TGuid is that you can write:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. const efi_loaded_image_protocol_guid: TGuid = '{5B1B31A1-9562-11D2-8E3F-00A0C969723B}';
