14.0 The Boot Loader GRUB 2

This chapter describes how to configure GRUB 2, the boot loader used in SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server. It is the successor to the traditional GRUB boot loader—now called GRUB Legacy. GRUB 2 has been the default boot loader in SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server since version 12. A YaST module is available for configuring the most important settings. The boot procedure as a whole is outlined in Section 12.0, Introduction to the Boot Process. For details on Secure Boot support for UEFI machines, see Section 13.0, UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface).
