In general GRUB tries to use BIOS/EFI/firmware calls to access all
devices. However, it also contains some drivers for devices which are
not accessible via BIOS/EFI/firmware or you find that BIOS/EFI/firmware
is buggy in one way or another and you have to use the GRUB's own driver
to access those devices, e.g. AHCI.
