Version: 
1.1.4
Release date: 
Thursday, 9 November, 2017

Authors/Port authors:

AiR-BOOT, a highly customizable boot-manager 100% in MBR: does not need any real space on harddisk! It is completely written in Assembler, and that's why it is so small in size, yet powerful enought to contain it's own SETUP together with a load of handy features!

Main features:

  • colored Boot-Menu;
  • completly integrated, Award-styled, menu-driven SETUP, including real help to every option;
  • very easy Installation/Repair via disc or CD-ROM;
  • configurable password protection;
  • 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);
  • OS/2 LVM-aware;
  • OS/2/eCS logical booting;
  • SETABOOT for OS/2/eCS included (including support for XWorkplace);
  • includes Linux Boot-Commandline and automagically, but configurable root-partition.

Since 1.07 version, AiR-BOOT is the official eComStation bootmanager, instead of the old IBM Bootmanager, and it is included into OS/2 eComStation 2.1 Operating System release!
