How bad is this GRUB message

Postby yotama9 on Sat Nov 19, 2011 7:47 am

I have just installed LMDE on my laptop and did the good old
Code: Select all
 sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade


[GRUB was updated as well. At first I tried to do nothing but I was worned that no grub will be installed. This sounded bad to me so I selected to go back and then picked some partition. I'm not sure if I sellected the right partition. When that was done, I read on the terminal:
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Attempting to install GRUB to a partitionless disk or to a partition. This is a BAD idea..
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged..
Installation finished. No error reported.
Generating grub.cfg ...

Am I safe to reboot?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

yes, it is safe to reboot.

that message is just a warning. I have seen that for over 100 times, and each time i ignore them.
