perhaps you misunderstood my question:

if you have an operating system on a disk, but you have no kernel on
that disk, on no floppy, and no other way of loading it, what do you

hint: a bunch of unrunable code, as there is nothing running, except
maybe the BIOS bit that is looking for a bootloader, or perhaps a very
unhappy bootloader that can find no kernel.

try this at home:

grub> kernel (hd0,1)/bin/sh
grub> boot
