Re: GRUB install fails


I think the UEFI boot loader in the PC is one of the corrupt one (will only boot MS Windows 10, not Linux Mint 18, Debian 8.6 or Debian stretch).

I think I have found a bit more about the issue,
if I run sudo grub-install --force /dev/sda it works (the two errors are converted into warnings, but Grub is installed.
... but this might give errors when a new kernel is installed. since Grub propably not willbe upgraded, - Good there are an old kernel version too.
Since root is on an ecrypted device it is not so easy to make a static grub entry to the symlinks /vmlinuz and /initrd.img

Should I report this as an error, and where?

i believe debian is better with respect to support of bios/uefi.
I bought a lenovo thinkpad edge e540 with win 19.
I have took the dvd with debian 8 and I could install debian 8 64bit without problems. Than in debian I installed virtualbox and in the virtualbox I have installed win 10.
All installations without problems with bios/uefi.
I habe bought my laptop last year januari 2015.
