This ticket is intended to cover the various changes made to Loader specifically to support functionality required on Triton boot media. These changes include:

New forth words to support platform image rollback and ipxe boot:

Changes to the menu-display word so that the autoboot message indicates whether it will be booting from the USB key or iPXE.
