The rEFInd boot loader for UEFI Systems: A life (and sanity) saver

Filed under
Software

I have been struggling for quite some time now to set up multi-boot support on a new HP Pavilion dm1-4310ez sub-notebook that came preloaded with Windows 8, UEFI, and gpt disk partitioning.

During that time I have slowly (much too slowly) learned a lot about booting UEFI systems. Thanks to some very helpful comments and advice from Adam Williamson at Fedora, some excellent documents written by Roderick W Smith, a lot of trial and error, and rebooting-adjusting-testing-rebooting ad infinitum (or more accurately ad nauseum), I'm finally starting to make some progress.
