help to understand grub steps

hello everyone!
i have a few questions about grub steps!
i know that when i start the pc:
1-the cpu loads the bios
2-bios controls that every component is functional and loads the stage 1 that is stored in the MBR
3-stage 1 loads the stage 2 that is stored somewhere in the hd
4-stage 2 show to the user the Operating systems available and let the user select the one he wants, then it loads Kernel, initrd and other stuf related to the OS selected.
these steps are right?
i know that exists also a stage 1.5 placed after the bios step
2-bios loads stage 1.5 when the stage 1 stored in MBR is not available (why not?), stage 1.5 is located exactly after the MBR and once loaded it reads and load the stage 2 and so on...
is it right?
tnx for your support!
