RE: implicit mounting of the root partition for rw

I think grub only mounts the root partition to load the kernel if the /boot directory is not on another partition. But passes commands with the location of root partition so it can load system files etc so it can load the gnu system. I really don't know, I'm just taking a educated guess.

I really like the question though that is a good one, I'd like to know a solid answer.
