Theming rEFInd To Make Dual Booting Pretty

If you’ve used rEFInd to dual boot, you were probably super underwhelmed by the default theme.

If you’re dual booting with any self-respect you’ll want to clean this theme up a bit, and fortunately some amazing themes already exist out there.

Evan Purkhiser has an awesome one here: https://github.com/EvanPurkhiser/rEFInd-minimal

Find Your rEFInd Install

To install the theme on a Mac, you need to mount the EFI volume to access the rEFInd files.

To find your EFI volume, run:

diskutil list

In my case the EFI is located at disk0s1.

Create a mount point

sudo mkdir /Volumes/efi

Mount the Volume:

sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/esp

 

Install the Theme

Then you can just use Finder to navigate to /Volumes/efi/EFI/refind/

Make a directory called themes.

Copy theme into themes directory.

Add the following line to refind.conf:

include themes/rEFInd-minimal/theme.conf

Reboot and enjoy the new theme!

You can read more about finding the rEFInd install on AskUbuntu here.
