KBoot

KBoot is a general-purpose boot loader, which currently supports both BIOS- and UEFI-based x86 PCs.

A short feature overview:

  • Text and GUI menu interfaces
  • Interactive shell
  • Serial console support
  • Ext2/3/4, FAT and ISO9660 filesystem support
  • MBR and GPT partition support
  • PXE network booting
  • Linux and Multiboot OS loaders
  • BIOS and EFI chain loaders (for booting OSes not natively supported, e.g. Windows)
  • Custom boot protocol targeting hobby OS projects

Current limitations:

  • No FAT boot sector - cannot boot directly from a FAT filesystem on legacy BIOS systems.
  • Floppy drives are not supported on BIOS systems.
  • UEFI installation to disk on Macs is not supported (legacy BIOS, i.e. Boot Camp, is OK).
