Really quiet boot loader


Hi, I am looking for completely quiet bootloader.
Currently I use syslinux on my machine, and i am preety satisfied with that because there's only 2 lines of text durig boot.
I would like to have completely quiet boot (no text) in my raspberry pi project. Could you tell me is there any bootloader that i can configure to do that?
I use archlinux ARM without any encryption nor any custom kernel settings. I considered using syslinux, grub and LILO, could you tell me if any of these can be configured to get rid of text completely? Maybe there's some alternative program i may use?

Thank you for your help, best wishes.

It's not really the bootloader who is outputing text at boot, they are kernel and system init messages

Check this last post for quiet boot:

Hmmm - the only times I boot my pi3, I really want to see the messages.
ARM doesn't use the "normal" bootloaders. And of course Arch uses systemd.
Perhaps you should just look away.

Thank you for replies. Indeed, i recognised the problem wrong. I will find the way to configure kernel with "quiet splash", that will solve the problem surely.
