nyan-load

code is based on https://github.com/puckipedia/efi-example.

have you ever wanted a moving nyan cat as your bootloader? of course!

now you can.

the rainbow and cat tail moves as of right now, and work is being done to add stars in the background.

image

to exit the bootloader, enter the konami code.

installing

make will generate the file nyan-load.efi. Make that your default bootloader, and the wonders of nyan cat will appear the next time you boot up.

Alternatively, you can also just try it in a virtual machine (qemu) by running make go to open up qemu.

If you do go the virtual machine route, you will need the proper firmware - Open Virtual Machine Firmware (OVMF).

Check out http://www.tianocore.org/ovmf/ for more info and (https://sourceforge.net/projects/edk2/files/OVMF/ or https://github.com/BlankOn/ovmf-blobs) to download.

TODO

  • add the stars
