The license does not allow you to install or run GRUB on a computer
without telling the user, if that's what you're after.
The license lets you remove the welcome message, but you still MUST
inform the user of their GPL rights to the copy of GRUB you've given
them (and if you are using a copy of GRUB modified to remove the
welcome message, then you are responsible for meeting the GPL source
code copy requirements yourself, and can't simply direct users to an
official download page).
