I want to know what a IDE do you all use? I just have download the grub 2 project. Can you advise me how to setting up eclipse to import as a project, how can I debug it?

Please, don't post mail in HTML format. That's not good manners.

As I stated to you on help-grub, low-level projects like GRUB are typically built without IDEs, as they can get in the way. In you want to debug, use a hardware debugger or go old school and use print statements. It's surprisingly effective, considering you can't typically develop code the "normal" way with a boot loader as low-level as GRUB.

There is limited for x86 debugging with gdb, but this isn't documented all that well (GRUB's documentation is falling behind).
Kindly regards
