Re: [LUG] Unable to Install Grub Fatal error


Whoops, forgot an even easier method:


Finish off the Debian install, ignoring the errors: it just won't be
bootable. Grab the SG2D iso from the site, unetbootin it onto your stick
and boot - it will give you several methods to non-destructively
autodetect and boot into your Debian system.

Once you're in, run fdisk -l to see which disk your OS is on (probably
/dev/sda) and issue the following command as root:

grub-install /dev/sdX

changing X to the appropriate entry.

Exit, remove stick and reboot.
