#900 PR merged: First steps towards more reliably installing the right bootloader

Labels: enhancement, fixed / solved / done

Regarding installing GRUB Legacy as bootloader
overhauled finalize/Linux-i386/21_install_grub.sh and
improved finalie/default/01_prepare_checks.sh
(see issue https://github.com/rear/rear/issues/895)

It is still not fully reliably installing the right bootloader:
When GRUB 2 is installed in addition To GrubLegacy
it still prefers to install GRUB 2 as bootloader
even if the BOOTLOADER variable tells "GRUB"
(which means GRUB Legacy).

I.e. further work is needed...

According to https://github.com/rear/rear/issues/895#issuecomment-230271596 I merge it.

There should be no changes for other bootloaders.
Only GRUB Legacy bootloader installation should be affected.
