Is it possible to use Grub2 on platforms other than Linux? Such platforms may

What are you talking about? grub has nothing to do with run level.

  Also, what about platforms that aren't Unix-based? Such platforms may
  not run bash scripts or have "etc/" directories.
My apologies. Apparently, I misunderstood what I was reading & thought that this information was current. [1][2] Considering the way the scripts were named, I incorrectly assumed that it was using runlevels.

Current version 2.02 beta2 switched from shell scripts to compiled
binaries; e.g. Windows is supported natively, you can download prebuilt
package from Also platform support code is sufficiently
modular so adding support for new systems should be easier.
Good to know!
