Any good Boot Loaders available for UEFI systems?

    I'm in the process of migrating over to UEFI but currently one thing holding me up is finding a Boot Loader that works with UEFI systems. Right now I'm using mbldr which allows me to boot into multiple OS's. Does anyone know of anything similar that will work with UEFI systems?

    Good suggestion but I was hoping to find something a little more elegant than being presented with a Windows Boot Manager screen every time I boot up. With mbldr I have it set to wait for 3 seconds after the BIOS loads which I can then hit either F1, F2, F3 etc. to load different OS's. If I don't make a choice within those 3 seconds then it will automatically boot into my default partition. Basically it's just a little less intrusive than how the Windows Boot Manager takes up the whole screen.

    If I can't find any other options then I'll certainly go that route, but hopefully there is another tool like mbldr out there that works with UEFI. :)

    You can configure the time out with easyBCD BTW and the default OS to boot from :tea:

    Go and see these guys: terabyteunlimited.com
    Real professionals!
    They have a fantastic product : bootit-bare-metal. But noy yet compatible with UEFI. This is what they say :"We have not yet found a UEFI system that is feature complete and stable. Consider this to be a warning that the state of the UEFI environment is on the bleeding edge."
    Follow them and their products (free trial one month). Very interesting.

    Maybe a stupid question, but why not use you -- you know -- UEFI to do the work? It should negate the need for any bootloaders, your computer is supposed to come with one built in.

    uefi is not a bootloader. it is new type of bios. you still need a bootloader.
