kexec tool for kexec reboots – This tool is used to load a kernel in memory and reboot into the kernel loaded in memory using the kexec system call.
Install kexec-tools in debian
#apt-get install kexec-tools
and you’re done! Never again will you see that ugly BIOS POST when rebooting your Debian
What happens when you want to see the BIOS messages, say if h/w is giving you problems. Do you have to apt-get remove kexec-tools? Thanks for the info.
call “coldreboot” from the kexec-tools packages. This will reboot the computer normally, with the reinitialisation of the bios.
