At what point did you have "to go to a second grub menu to boot" ? Did
the installer jump straight from installing packages to installing
grub, or did you do that yourself? Did everything work in the end?

So, the installer worked OK? But then you didn't get a grub menu on
the next installation?

And it worked OK?
