Our long term goal is to replace the common LinuxBIOS payload FILO with a LinuxBIOS-capable version of GRUB2.


Patrick Georgi has been working on GRUB2 for LinuxBIOS during the Google Summer of Code 2007.

Find his code here:


How to build GRUB2 as a payload

$ # build lbgrub2:
$ # target/target_alias assume that you use i386-elf-gcc
$ configure --with-platform=linuxbios --prefix=$PWD/installed 
$ make && make install
$ $PWD/installed/bin/grub-mkimage -o core.img normal fat iso9660 ext2 pc atadisk rom lar ls cat cmp hello help serial terminal test configfile multiboot boot loopback
