If the Debian installer has installed grub-pc(-*) package then the
installer has recognized the system as BIOS compatible, if the installer
has installed grub-efi(-*) package then the installer has recognized
your system as EFI compatible.

If you could start Debian installer, then you can start the installer in
rescue mode and you can mount all partitions you have created during the
installation process and see what packages the installer has installed.
