Grub4DOS for UEFI (G4E) - Installer - 210815
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you want to have additional boot options available make use of Grub4EFI (G4E / Grub4DOS for UEFI) boot manager.
It is developed by a1ive and widely discussed here on reboot.pro.
a1ive's original thread
alacrans help topic

G4E offers a boot menu that's easy to customize. Examples are provided in the threads above.
Although it is in developement, main functions are useable right now: booting ISO / WIM / VHD.

Note:
You can use G4E only if you are willing and able to bypass "Secure Boot".

Tested on Windows 10 21H1 (UEFI-mode:GPT and MBR). Real workstation and VirtualBox machine.

To edit G4E menu there is Grubmenu-xTender available.

Take a look at this related topic where a short desciption of usage is given.
