Hi,

Yes, I realize that I can change the boot.ini file, however that requires pulling the micro SD card and editing the file on another system.

What I would like to do is have a menu that selects from multiple boot files. 

Or copies (overwrites) a source file over the boot.ini.  In this scenario I would have a boot.ini.odroid and boot.ini.tinycore.  On selection, the selected file would be copied over boot.ini.

Just mount the boot partition, that is where boot.ini resides.   Change the file, then reboot
