rEFInd boot menu toolkit for UEFI

rEFInd presents a graphical menu for selecting your     boot OS.
rEFInd is a boot menu and maintenance toolkit for UEFI-based machines like all new PCs and Intel Macs. It can be used to boot multiple operating systems. It also provides a way to enter and explore the EFI pre-boot environment.
I was able to solve boot problems with HP laptop which wouldnt show Linux Deepin while booting (only Windows was showing)
