petitboot(8) The Petitboot bootloader


Petitboot is a platform independent bootloader based on Linux kexec. Petitboot can load Linux kernel and initrd images from any device that can be mounted by Linux, and can also load images from the network using the HTTP, HTTPS, NFS, SFTP, and TFTP protocols.

Petitboot looks for bootloader configuration files on mountable devices in the system, and can also be configured to use boot information from a DHCP server.
