I wish to dedicate the first partition to Grub
Assuming partition is sda1, from any working grub 2 bios-legacy OS in
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sda
Then put in your grub.cfg in sda1/boot/grub/grub.cfg (or
/boot/grub2/grub.cfg if applicable)
I did that.
When booting that device, I got the expected grub command line.
I am now investigating what my grub.cfg should look like.
I am reading several references listed at
I suspect that
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
will do what I need.
There is a reference to
which has references to /etc/grub.d and /etc/default/grub .
These were not created by grub-install.
Is there a default set somewhere?
Would it be safe to copy them from my current install?
Are there other directories and files I'll need?
Thank you very much.
I suspect you have rattled my thought patterns enough to resolve some
apparently unrelated conundrums ;}
