With a Raspberry Pi 4, I would like to run Ubuntu and GRUB2. This answer says that GRUB is a prerequisite for the generic Linux kernel, but does not explain how to install it.

  • You can't because a RPi doesn't boot that way. If you want Ubuntu you need the RPi specific version from ubuntu.com/download/raspberry-pi – Dougie Apr 17 '20 at 21:58
  • @Dougie Is that specifically for the Pi 4? The page linked in the official Ubuntu Wiki describes setting up GRUB on a Pi 3. – lights0123 Apr 18 '20 at 2:12
  • GRUB is irrelevant. Raspberry Pis don't have a BIOS, they don't use UEFI so there's nothing for GRUB to do. – Dougie Apr 18 '20 at 19:46

If you are looking to multi-boot then use Berryboot from here - I've not seen Grub on a Pi :-)

Ubuntu has its own images for the server version - you could build a GUI version from that if you wanted...
