Hi!

Originally x64 vmlinux entry point is:
Code:
Entry point address:               0x1000000

I define the Multiboot header to be in a seperate section, then link that section at the start of .text in the linker script.
after this entry point is:
Code:
Entry point address:               0x1000040


With old entry address i am able to jump from my bootloader to the kernel entry point and it is successfully booting, however I want my vmlinux to be multiboot complaint (so i need that header)
but after adding it and perform jump to the new address, it's hanging..

Is the jump address incorrect or I need to change something in kernel ?

Your bootloader must be multiboot-compliant to serve your kernel. You have also posted this on stackoverflow.
