<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
and ideas you had during the initial install.>I
Initial install gave all indications of proper installation of grub.
Reboot failed; only underscore prompt displayed.
Second attempt at installation did the following before re-boot:
Opened #2 term prior to re-boot
grub.cfg unicode.pf2 #No other files or directories besides these two.
Missing three directories compared to Debian-8. Look like incomplete
Booting System Rescue CD did NOT allow for mounting sda1 .
Therefore, another problem in addition to grub.
Due to inability to mount, not much more information available on sda1.
