I found this very interesting and useful. Thank you.
One issue I didn't see mentioned is: Booting into grub1 systems.
I encountered this recently when upgrading a CentOS-6.5 system to CentOS-7
(on a relatively old BIOS machine).
Although the old system was mentioned in the grub menu,
attempting to boot into it caused an immediate segfault.
Is it possible to boot into a system using the old grub
by employing a chainloader as for Windows?
If so, is this documented somewhere?

I would think that grub2 would boot el6 without chainloading, but I haven't
tested that... good catch, I'll look into it. A bz ticket would help make
sure the question doesn't fall off the radar, if you have time.
