Subject description: boot manager for EFI-based computers
 

http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/

There is various ways to obtain refind.

Debian testing (Buster) has it in its repositories.

Deb file and PPA available (Reminder : PPA is for Dog-based OS)

It is very small, installs to one directory in the EFI boot partition, and then will find, list and boot pretty much everything bootable on a UEFI system.

You're likely to benefit from it on computers that boot multiple OSes, such as two or more of Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. You will not find rEFInd useful on older BIOS-based computers or on systems with other types of firmware, such as older PowerPC-based Macs. Prior to mid-2011, few computers outside of Intel-based Macs used EFI; but starting in 2011, computer manufacturers began adopting UEFI in droves, so most computers bought since then use EFI.

Fat Dog—This variant of Puppy Linux uses a combination of rEFInd and GRUB 2 to boot its installation medium in EFI mode and provides a rEFInd package in its repository set.
