x86: Administering the GRand Unified Bootloader

This chapter discuses GRUB 2, the default system boot loader for x86 systems since Oracle Solaris 11.2. All information applies to x86 systems only, unless specified otherwise.

For any task that involves GRUB Legacy, refer to Booting and Shutting Down Oracle Solaris 11.3 Systems. The section Introducing GRUB 2 in that guide also provides an overview of GRUB 2.

Note -  To manage GRUB and issue commands described in this chapter, you must have the appropriate rights profiles. See Using Rights Profiles to Administer Boot Features.
