AiR-BOOT - The ultimate Boot-Loader

2009: http://air-boot.sourceforge.net

A boot-loader is some sort of program, that is loaded just prior an OS (like OS/2, DOS, Windoze, etc.) by the BIOS (the thing that is loaded right when you turn on your computer). Standard boot-loaders just load one OS from one partition without letting you choose the OS, you want to get booted.

AiR-BOOT is a highly customizable boot-loader with colored menu, built in Setup and some other features that no other boot-loaders offer today.

Current version of AiR-BOOT is Official Release 1.04.

The features:
- Colored Boot-Menu
- Completly integrated, Award-styled, menu-driven SETUP including real help to every option
- Foreign versions including German, Dutch, French, Italian and Russian - Very easy Installation/Repair via disc or CD-ROM
- Localized to English/Dutch/German/French
- Boot-Process completly configurable
- Configurable Password protection
- 100% in MBR (does not need any real space on harddisc)
- "Corrupt-MBR"-Protection (is able to restore MBR, if it gets corrupted)
- Intelligent Partition Handling. will not reset or act abnormal, if partitions are moved, changed, etc.
- Hiding partitions support
- Floppy-Boot
- Finds (Stealth-)MBR and Bootrecord-Virii (and is able to remove most of them)
- Repair-Mode, AiR-BOOT disc/CD-ROM is able to repair AiR-BOOT without resetting the configuration
- MBR-Protection under Real-Mode
- OS/2 LVM-aware
- OS/2/eCS Logical Booting
