Comments/Problems: I use only text expert install.

1. GRUB failed to be installed properly.
   Red screen shows up informing error

2. /boot/efi partition is fixed to sda1
   I have replaced it with sdb1 through Alt-F2 screen since I have to modify fstab for SSD install anyway.


Thank you for your effort at creating jessie b2 image.  Even though GRUB install fails, I can somehow manage to make it work.  Except for above 2 points, I can install jessie somehow.  But for other people, these may be fatal.
