How can I install the linux without any bootloader?
I want to install the linux without any bootloader directly booted from kernel.
I'm looking for step by step manual to do this.. I know that I should make some changes in the MBR to points to my kernel image, but I don't know how..
is there any manual for this??
sorry for my poor english
Booting without a bootloader such as Grub.
I don't think that you have ever seen Windows needing a bootloader when it is the only OS on the hard drive. That's because it's information is the MBR of the hard drive. And that's what the system looks for when booting Windows.

At least that's the way that I've done before. However. I still would recommend that you do use a bootloader like Grub. This way, if you should happen to add another Linux distro to your hard drive, you would be all set to manage that one also. Also, Grub will give you the option to activate Windows, even if it is on a separate hard drive.
