Machine: Dell Optiplex 9020 SFF Partitions: see attached files hardware-summary and partman Base System Installation Checklist: [O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it Initial boot: [O] Detect network card: [O] Configure network: [O] Detect media: [O] Load installer modules: [O] Clock/timezone setup: [O] User/password setup: [O] Detect hard drives: [O] Partition hard drives: [O] Install base system: [O] Install tasks: [O] Install boot loader: [E] Overall install: [E] Comments/Problems:I did a pretty minimal installation with the base system but no graphical environmend. I used the "Guided - use entire disk and set up encrypted LVM" partitioning scheme. Then I chose the harddisk sdb instead of USB stick sda.
Installing GRUB (more precisely: configuring shim-signed:amd64) failedwith a message complaining that GRUB could not be installed on dummy (execution of "grub install dummy" failed).
Conclusion: I was unable to install GRUB using the Debian installer. That left me with a non bootable installation.
Thanks for looking into this, Christof
