Cool.  I am interested to see how far, and where this goes.

I have been working to get kexec into the kernel and figuring
out how to use it to build interesting bootloaders.  What
I have been stumbling over is how do I put in support for booting
windows.  As I do not trust BIOS calls that talk to hardware
device drivers after a Linux kernel has run.

Long term does running your code on a machine with a normal BIOS
sound like a possibility?

If so then a very interesting bootloader can be built on top of kexec,
and the linux kernel.
