A 2 page slide describing history of boot loaders

DAWN OF BOOTLOADERS In the early days floppy boot sector and shoelace were the only linux bootloaders.Shoelace only supported minix file system.(supported by linux) ● VFS interface was added to implement other FS. ● Many new FS were developed after its introduction. ● To boot from hard disk, minix was needed to be at the root FS. ●

RISE OF LILO ● ● A bootloader was needed that would not prevent user from experimenting new FS. LILO was written to fill this gap , A bootloader unaware of FILE SYSTEM design. – ● ● LILO could boot boot from most disks supported by linux kernel. This was very successful. However,since Ext2 has become a des facto standard,FS aware bootloader have been successfully tried again.
