New DUET based EFI Bootloader!

:::EDIT::: 11/18/2010 Major Bug Fix Snow Leo hang is fixed with kext patch working!!


This is a DUET based Bootloader that uses EFI over BIOS on Efi compatible PC's..

At minimum you need a Core based processor and a 945 based chipset or higher.

This efi bootloader consists of an Efildr20 file and an efi file structure.

There are two different Efildr20 loaders. One is for NVIDIA card owners and the other is for all other card owners.

It has a nice GUI, READ-ME and user feature's!

It is capable of booting Win7, Linux Fedora and OS X 10.4-10.6.x.

rEFIt run's natively from any os x partition. Just like on an Intel Mac!

The efi loader application uses Apple's own boot.efi for the boot process!

It is also capable of loading efi strings, dsdt, additional kext files and efi modules.

I encourage all that are interested in this to come join #iboot on irc moofspeak.

Greeting's

The READ-ME included in the iBOOT download link always helps...

You need to format your usb pen drive to the FAT32 file structure. Using OS X in disk utility you would format it to the MS-DOS(FAT) file system.

You can then use the DuetToHdd bootsector tool that is also included in the iBOOT download and includes it's own READ-ME...

If you were running windows you might have a problem getting your usb pen drive set up because I'm not done with the windows bootsector tool yet. Maybe in a couple days it will be done.

Hopefully that is all you will need to get started for now. It is such an elegant interface to use. "True" EFI is a beautiful thing.

The bit that doesn't make sense is the files.
What do you do/where do they go on the USB stick.

hey guys, i just got iboot installed to an SD card. Boots up wonderfully, i wish it saved my resolution settings, but thats ok. I was able to successfully boot rEFIt from Macintosh HD, but I cannot boot any OS. Selecting Macintosh HD to boot from yields a greay screen with no HD light activity for a very long time

My install process consisted of running the DuetToHD from terminal, and it successfully installed to my USB SD card reader. I then copied the "efi" folder over, and removed strings.dat as well as AppleDecrypt.kext, because I use fakesmc.kext instead. The root of my SD card looks like this:
efi (folder)
Efildr20
Efivar.bin

Where did you get Efivar.bin from ??
