Welcome to AiR-BOOT

AiR-BOOT is a boot-manager that is small and yet contains a load of interesting features. It was developed by Martin Kiewitz and the first versions appeared around 2002.

With the introduction of newer Windows versions (Vista/7), that use their own ~100MB boot-partition, problems occured when using IBM Boot Manager, the default boot-manager supplied with eComStation. Also the introduction of huge harddisks (>502GiB) caused incompatibility issues.

While the v1.06 version of AiR-BOOT could almost be used as a replacement for the aging IBM-BM, a couple of things needed to be fixed.

This was done upon the v1.06 code-base resulting in v1.07. With the release of eComStation v2.1, AiR-BOOT replaces IBM Boot Manager.

AiR-BOOT is in active development to enhance it's functionality and user experience. It's goal is to have all operating-systems, great-and-small, peacefully live together on your disks.
