Linux The tools used to boot Linux are changing. 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.

Yes, since generic machines with common mobos (pc chips, msi, gigabyte, asus, etc) to medium/high end computers/servers (mainly HP, IBM, Dell and some Supermicro/Megaware).

It's a very mixed environment. IDE/SATA/SCSI/SAS, GRUB2 work for us every time.

My personal notebook, HP Pavilion DV5 1240br, works flawlessly with grub2, with grub1, it doesn't work (doesn't recognize my hd).

Thank you for indulging my curiosity <-;

I also have not had any problems with GRUB2 (or GRUB1).
