rEFInd is a Cross Platform EFI boot manager utility for starting up various OSes at Power on!

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.


    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
