I don't understand what you mean about the HFS+ dirtying issue. Aren't
grub's accesses to the file-system read-only anyway?

I'd really genuinely like to know how old a mac has to be not to support
booting from HFS+, a filesystem that came out around 1998, ~24 years
ago. I'd also like to know what use people have for running modern grub
on a machine that old.

Kind regards,
