Managing the GRUB Menu in the Oracle Solaris Release

When you boot an x86 based system, the GRUB menu is displayed. This menu reflects the contents of the currently active menu.lst configuration file on the system. A boot entry for every OS instance that is installed on your system is listed.

When you install Oracle Solaris, or any new operating system, the bootadm command automatically updates the menu.lst file, adding an entry for the newly installed operating system. However, in certain cases, for example, if you previously installed Linux, the GRUB menu is not automatically updated after an installation to include the Linux entry from a previous installation.
