@kindex -efi-boot-part EFI boot partition
@cindex Bootability, for EFI, -efi-boot-part
Copy a file from disk into the emerging ISO image and mark it by a GPT entry as
EFI System Partition. EFI boot firmware is supposed to use a FAT filesystem
image in such a partition for booting from USB stick or hard disk.
@*
Instead of a disk_path, the word @minus{}@minus{}efi-boot-image may be given.
It exposes in GPT the content of the first El Torito EFI boot image as
EFI system partition. EFI boot images are introduced by options -e or
@minus{}@minus{}efi-boot.
The affected EFI boot image cannot show up in HFS+ because it is stored
outside the HFS+ partition.

@item -chrp-boot-part
@kindex -chrp-boot-part CHRP partition
@cindex Bootability, for CHRP, -chrp-boot-part
Mark the block range of the whole emerging ISO image as MBR partition of type
0x41. This is not compatible with any other feature that produces MBR
partition entries. It makes GPT unrecognizable.
@c man .TP
@item -prep-boot-part disk_path
@kindex -prep-boot-part PReP partition
@cindex Bootability, for PReP, -prep-boot-part
Copy a file from disk into the emerging ISO image and mark it by a MBR
partition entry of type 0x96. PReP boot firmware is supposed to read
the content of the partition as single ELF executable file.
This option is compatible with other MBR partitions and with GPT.
