14 Description: boot manager for EFI-based computers
15 A graphical boot manager for EFI- and UEFI-based computers, such as all
16 Intel-based Macs and recent (most 2011 and later) PCs. rEFInd presents a
17 boot menu showing all the EFI boot loaders on the EFI-accessible
18 partitions, and optionally BIOS-bootable partitions on Macs and BIOS boot
19 entries on UEFI PCs with CSMs. EFI-compatbile OSes, including Linux,
20 provide boot loaders that rEFInd can detect and launch. rEFInd can launch
21 Linux EFI boot loaders such as ELILO, GRUB Legacy, GRUB 2, and 3.3.0 and
22 later kernels with EFI stub support. EFI filesystem drivers for ext2/3/4fs,
23 ReiserFS, Btrfs, NTFS, HFS+, and ISO-9660 enable rEFInd to read boot
24 loaders from these filesystems, too. rEFInd's ability to detect boot
25 loaders at runtime makes it very easy to use, particularly when paired with
26 Linux kernels that provide EFI stub support.
