Synopsis

kernel [--non-mem-option] file [...]

Load the kernel image from file. Any text following file is passed on as the kernel command line. After running this command, you must reload any modules. The option --type specifies the kernel type and is required only for loading a NetBSD ELF kernel; GRUB automatically determines other types. The possible values of type are linux, biglinux, freebsd, multiboot, netbsd, and openbsd. For Linux, --no-mem-option tells GRUB not to pass the mem= option to the kernel.
