It's not that hard guys just think of the unzipped folder as root/... being so that means that...

 

boot & nvram.inf are in /

 

Extra/modules

(this is where the magic happens)

 

The rest in Extra is not necessary but look at the boot/smbios.plist's for reference (I used my own)

 

etc="AKA" /Private/etc

Put rc.local & rc.shutdown.local in there

 

After Reboot the boot loader will stop after detecting partitions you hit Enter key and it will resume as normal.

 

That's all folks

 

WARNING: May cause insomnia use as directed. If Insomnia persists for more than 24 hours add restart fix to your com.apple.Boot.plist in the event of mind loss/delerium consult your EDP specialists or replace boot with your old one

We have been talking about integrating it into to the EDP, so that the bootloader was optimized for the specific model also...
