x86: Administering the GRand Unified Bootloader (Tasks)

This chapter provides overview and task-related information about the GRand Unified Bootloader (GRUB). GRUB 2, the descendent of the original GRUB 0.97-based boot loader, is the system boot loader on x86 platforms in this release.

Note -  The original GRUB (GRUB Legacy) continues to be the default boot loader on x86 platforms that run Oracle Solaris 10 and the previous Oracle Solaris 11 release, Oracle Solaris 11 11/11. If you are running an Oracle Solaris release that supports the legacy version of GRUB, see Booting and Shutting Down Oracle Solaris on x86 Platforms.
