== Running from grub as a payload ==
=== Introduction ===
Ipxe depend on the BIOS or EFI interfaces.
Grub doesn't provide a BIOS interface.
When grub is loaded from a BIOS (like SeaBIOS for instance), the interfaces are provided by the BIOS.
but when grub is the payload(coreboot loads grub directly), then this BIOS interfaces are absent.
The way arround this is to make grub load SeaBIOS which then loads ipxe.
=== SeaBIOS ===
grub can load payloads.
Refer to the [[GRUB2#Payloads|corresponding SeaBIOS section]] for making grub load SeaBIOS.
