KBoot is a boot loader project that started as a custom second stage boot loader for Kiwi, and eventually became a general purpose boot loader. It supports both BIOS- and UEFI-based x86 PCs, though it is designed to be able to be extended to other platforms as well.


  • Linux/Multiboot kernelĀ loaders
  • EFI and BIOS chain loadersĀ (can boot Windows)
  • Custom boot protocol (used by Kiwi)
  • FAT, ext2 and ISO9660 filesystem support
  • Optional graphical boot menu (see screenshot below)
  • PXE network boot support
