x86 Boot Architecture

The open source GNU GRand Unified Bootloader (GRUB) is implemented on x86 based systems that are running the Solaris Operating System. GRUB is the boot loader that is responsible for loading a boot archive into a system's memory. The boot archive contains the kernel modules and configuration files that are required to boot the system.

The GRUB main menu is based on the /boot/grub/menu.lst configuration file. For more information on GRUB, see Chapter 11, Modifying Solaris Boot Behavior (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration and grub(5).
