You need to create a bunch of loader config files for systemd-boot:

File: /boot/loader/entries/70-poweroff.conf
efi /EFI/poweroff.efi
File: /boot/loader/entries/71-reboot.conf
title Reboot
efi /EFI/reboot.efi

Hi, tried to install and move generated efi from /usr/* to /boot/EFI (default archinstall), but also after a bootctl install /update seems this file are like invisible. Sorry, i need help. TY :)

It is nice to have positive feedback.

As far as I can tell, the level of support at the pre OS stage, and the software for that stage, is in flux. Possibly because it is more closely tied to the hardware. As it is closer to firmware than to software. I too would like to see free firmware distributed by current, or dedicated, distributions. However, at this time I do not have the resources to deal with software development hosting service. Feel free to do that, either by yourself or by other developers. Just keep it GPL2.

Thank you so much for this package! It works very well! I've been able to finally switch to systemd-boot now. I absolutely needed the poweroff and reboot menu entries for my setup.

My Optiplex micro computer is hidden behind the monitor. The power button is hard to access so I use the keyboard to power on. Sometimes accidental power-ons happen so it's good to have those menu entries available.

It might be useful to host the source files on Github or an equivalent service so other distros can potentially integrate them!

Thanks again!

I tried the poweroff.efi file but the system just hanged. Nothing really happened.
