I think this is normal. IIRC, Windows does not use ELF, while GRUB 2 depends on ELF.

Yes, MingW generates COFF and if using COFF, the GCC/binutils can't use
some of GAS's directive, like section switch. (I found GRUB using that
in its module loading mechanism.)

Maybe I still don't understand it well.

How much else does GRUB 2 depend on ELF?
