Boot-dfe is a modified version of Boot-132 created by David Elliott in 2007. The boot-dfe loader is started by another bootloader, typically [[GRUB]], or in the case of booting from a CD, a patched version of ISOLINUX. The interface between the two bootloaders is defined by the GNU [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiboot_Specification Multiboot Specification]. The boot-dfe loader populates the <code>struct boot_args</code> structure and passes it on the the XNU kernel. (See [[Bootloader#OS X boot process|OS X boot process]].).

The latest versions of boot-dfe are able to load additional kernel extensions to the XNU kernel as an initial ramdisk ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Initrd initrd]). The extensions can be stored in an HFS or HFS+ partition in a APM, GPT, or MBR partitioned volume. The ramdisks are supplied to boot-dfe by the  multiboot loader in the form of Multiboot modules.
