Description Dan Horák 2014-07-17 12:19:51 UTC
RHEL-7 switched to using grub2 as the bootloader, while RHEL-6 used yaboot, so the upgrade-tool must convert the existing yaboot.conf to config file understood by grub2. And also switch the bootloader package in the system being upgraded.

Comment 2 David Cantrell 2014-07-21 19:10:33 UTC
redhat-upgrade-tool does not change your boot loader.  You can do that on your own after a successful system upgrade, but to minimize risk of an unbootable system, redhat-upgrade-tool leaves the boot loader as-is.
