Hello Alice,

Platforms for grub are pc for the normal PC BIOS, efi-32 & efi-64 for  
EFI systems, coreboot as a replacement of BIOS, qemu for QEMU booting  
and yeelong for MIPS loongson, and maybe even ieee-1275 for OLPC and  

You can look at etc/make.conf in the grub source and look at the  
expanded GRUB_PLATFORMS variable.
