I've been scratching my head trying to remember the details of
bootloader installation in debian-installer and coming up nada, except
for somehow being able to specify /dev/null as location, let it
complain about bootloader installation failure, and not have it
corrupt my existing bootloader configuration, which always includes
generic/legacy compatible MBR code.
Exactly my concern given the bull in a china shop attitude the installer
seems to have.
Are you using the d-i in standard "install" mode, or in "advanced ->
