Re: Using GRUB2 with a custom OS

What I would suggest is to look at the Arch Linux project. There is a lot of 
information there,  including about making an installation that uses grub. 
Start simply by building something that uses Arch so not to focus on the OS 
part. Also, make it to support both BIOS and UEFI system as you will better 
understand the various moving parts.

Once you master the whole process, you can start changing things, such as 
having a custom kernel, custom root file system, etc.

For a simpler boot loader you can also look at syslinux which, despite the 
name, is a boot loader.

Subject: Using GRUB2 with a custom OS


I'm starting to develop my own OS and instead of writing my own bootloader
wanted to use GRUB2 as a quick fix. I have read most of but have been
unable to figure out how to make a bootable USB with my custom kernel file
detected and booted.

Can anyone give me some pointers as to the basic procedure I need to follow?
