rEFInd is a fork of the rEFIt boot manager. Like rEFIt, rEFInd can auto-detect your installed EFI boot loaders and it presents a pretty GUI menu of boot options. rEFInd goes beyond rEFIt in that rEFInd better handles systems with many boot loaders, gives better control over the boot loader search process, and provides the ability for users to define their own boot loader entries.

Features

  • Support for EFI 1.x and UEFI 2.x computers
  • Support for Mac and PC platforms
  • Graphical and text-mode boot selector
  • Auto-detection of available EFI boot loaders
  • Directly launch Linux 3.3.0 and later kernels with EFI stub loader support
  • Maintenance-free Linux kernel updates -- boot-time auto-detection means that no configuration file changes are needed after a kernel update
  • Manually edit boot-time options
  • Launch EFI programs such as an EFI shell (available from third parties)
  • Launch OS X and Windows recovery tools
  • Reboot into the firmware setup utility (on some UEFIs)
  • Try before installation via a CD-R or USB flash drive image
  • Secure Boot support (requires separate shim or PreLoader program)
  • Includes EFI drivers for ext2/3fs, ext4fs, ReiserFS, Btrfs, HFS+, NTFS, and ISO-9660

  • cool

  • Excellent boot manager. Great improvement over the original rEFIt (that was also a great one also but, unfortunately, stopped being maintained.) Thank you for the great job Roderick (and Christoph for the original rEFIt as well)

  • Roderick W. Smith does great job! First, He developed the great tool. Second, He collected and shared much of valuable information on rEFInd's page. Unfortunately, it's not allowed to post its address.
