Specifically, the Grand Unified Bootloader is now officially in maintenance mode only, and GRUB's developers have abandoned the original GRUB in favor of an entirely rewritten package, known as GRUB 2. Discover GRUB 2's new capabilities and how to use it.

I have a somewhat particular setup:

2 x 1TB hard drives in raid1 configuration with only one lvm partition with many logical volumes inside (/boot /root /swap... etc.)

The only bootloader able to boot my system is grub2

Anyway, humans are lazy; they don't want to learn new tricks if the old ones still work.
