When the start up of the system occurs, the GRUB loads its configuration. The GRUB allows the users to write a new boot sequence that provides a simple, bash-like, command line interface. The GRUB allows the users to dual boot Linux and Microsoft Windows. It supports multiple executable formats and hard drive file systems.
Benefits of GRUB
GRUB is an independent geometry translation and it supports multiple executable formats. It is dynamically configurable and it also supports non multiboot operating systems such as Microsoft Windows and OS/2 through chain loading. The users may view the contents of the files on any supported file system with the help of GRUB. The GRUB provides support for all commonly used Unix file systems by Windows such as VFAT and NTFS. You may install GRUB without being attached to an operating system.
GRUB may load an operating system directly and this method is desirable because you do not need to install or maintain other boot loaders. The GRUB is enough flexible to load an operating system from an arbitrary disk/partition. You need to follow some steps to boot any multiboot-compliant operating system using GRUB. The operating system images are stored by the command on a drive, and you need to set GRUB's root device to the drive. You have to load the kernel image by the command '@command'. Load them with the command '@command' if you need modules.
