3.2. Boot Loader

Installation media for IBM Power Systems now use the GRUB2 boot loader instead of the previously offered yaboot. For the big endian variant of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for POWER, GRUB2 is preferred but yaboot can also be used. The newly introduced little endian variant requires GRUB2 to boot.
The Installation Guide has been updated with instructions for setting up a network boot server for IBM Power Systems using GRUB2.
