Unified Kernel Image Booting

This script will create .efi files for booting directly from your UEFI (I'm using coreboot with tianocore).

change kernel command line, esp location and check for right file locations (vmlinuz, initramfs, ...)

sudo nano /usr/bin/unikernelimg


#check for root
if [[ $EUID -ne 0 ]]; then
   echo "This script must be run as root" 
   exit 1

#directory with initramfs, EFI, etc.

mkdir /tmp/unikernelimg
mkdir -p $ESP/EFI/linux
cd /tmp/unikernelimg

#kernel commandline for default and fallback
