Load64 is a sorry excuse for a second stage bootloader. It has no configuration, no filesystem support. It can load its kernels only from the volume header.

However it is simple, it is very fast, and requires no porting to use it on a new 64-bit ARCS platform. It is the only bootloader that can load Linux kernels on Octane machines.
