Ubuntu – What are Different Bootloaders Available for Ubuntu?


We are familiar with GRUB2 which is the next generation of the GRand Unified Bootloader (GRUB). It is the default bootloader since 9.10 (Karmic Koala).

It would be good to know about what are other boot-loaders available and how to install them in Ubuntu?

  • As far as I know, there is BURG (Brand-new Universal loadeR from GRUB). You can set up themes or wallpapers for the bootloader. Here is how you can install it from terminal:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/burg
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes

    To update the boot loader:

    sudo update-burg
