Invoking grub-install ********************* The program `grub-install' installs GRUB on your drive by the grub shell (Note: Invoking the grub shell). You must specify the device name on which you want to install GRUB, like this: grub-install INSTALL_DEVICE The device name INSTALL_DEVICE is an OS device name or a GRUB device name. `grub-install' accepts the following options: `--help' Print a summary of the command-line options and exit. `--version' Print the version number of GRUB and exit. `--force-lba' Force GRUB to use LBA mode even for a buggy BIOS. Use this option only if your BIOS doesn't work in LBA mode even though it supports LBA mode. `--root-directory=DIR' Install GRUB images under the directory DIR instead of the root directory. This option is useful when you want to install GRUB into a separate partition or a removable disk. Here is an example when you have a separate "boot" partition which is mounted on `/boot': grub-install --root-directory=/boot '(hd0)' `--grub-shell=FILE' Use FILE as the grub shell. You can append arbitrary options to FILE after the file name, like this: grub-install --grub-shell="grub --read-only" /dev/fd0 `--recheck' Recheck the device map, even if `/boot/grub/device.map' already exists. You should use this option whenever you add/remove a disk into/from your computer.
