x86: Administering the GRand Unified Bootloader

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 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.
