#650113 : grub-pc core.img has grown too much : Workaround
This error popped up while upgrading from squeeze to wheezy.
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Your embedding area is unusually small.
core.img won't fit in it..
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: error: embedding is not possible, but this is
required when the root device is on a RAID array or LVM volume.
Then I made a mistake (my bad) which led me to re-install everything.
debian-installer gave the same error.
I worked around this debian-installer failure to install root on
LVM+RAID by manually partitionning my disk using parted :
# parted /dev/sda
(parted) mkpart primary 1MB -0
I think debian-installer should do this by default. This has bitten me
really hard in the dist upgrade.
(please cc me if required as I'm not subscribed to debian-boot)
