The following example shows the messages when booting an x86 based system to run level 3 after the boot process has started. Because the Fast Reboot feature is the default in this release (on x86 platforms), booting the system with the reboot command initiates a fast reboot of the system, meaning the BIOS or UEFI firmware is bypassed. Also, the GRUB menu is not displayed during the system boot. If you need to access the system's firmware or edit the GRUB menu at boot time, use the reboot command with the –p option. See Initiating a Standard Reboot of a System That Has Fast Reboot Enabled.
