rEFInd is a boot manager for UEFI computer that will allow you to choose between Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, and other operating systems when you boot your computer, it can auto-detect your installed operating systems and presents a pretty GUI menu these operating systems. rEFInd is one of the most popular multi-boot managers on the market.

Under Linux and Mac OS X operating systems, you can use refind-install script to install rEFInd, it automatically copies rEFInd's files to the EFI System Partition (ESP) and makes changes to the firmware's NVRAM settings so that rEFInd will start the next time you boot. If the refind-install script does not work properly or you want to install it using Windows, you may need to use EasyUEFI to complete the installation and configuration. EasyUEFI is a Windows software for users to manage EFI boot options and ESP partitions, it is the tool recommended by rEFInd official. Below we'll show you how to set up multi-boot of Windows, Linux and Mac using rEFInd and EasyUEFI.

Unfortunately, the official Kali Linux documentation only describes how to install rEFInd in version 0.8.3 which doesn’t work on MacBooks running OS X Yosemite or newer due to a few changes Apple introduced back then. In addition to those changes, the rEFInd setup itself changed as well somewhere between version 0.8.3 and the current version. “./” installs rEFInd on Mac OS X’s root partition as “/EFI/refind“. “./ —esp” installs rEFInd on EFI partition. For other options including installing “bootx64.efi” using “./” see extra instructions. An operating system (OS) may support (U)EFI (macOS, Windows 7, 8, or 10, Linux) or not (Windows XP). Legacy boot is used for the last one, that is, the old BIOS system is used to handle boot sectors. Boot macOS, Windows, and Linux in UEFI or legacy mode on Mac or PC with UEFI or BIOS firmware.
