you could configure Qi to skip other partitions or use qi-bootmenu,
which is practically Linux kernel with kexec booting another kernels
from chosen partition. But in my opinion, qi-bootmenu concept is
overkill causing unwanted boot delay. I suggest using u-boot
bootloader for multiboot. This is my u-boot environment configuration
capable of booting from five partitions, each with different kernel
