    Unfortunately Multiboot is defective in way too many ways, beginning
    with its insistence of entering past the firmware point of no return,
    which means the bootloader has to do a lot of work (this has been proven
    to be a nonworkable solution) and no support for relocation.

    So that is not an option.
