it turns out that the Mint grub installer had already recognized and included another distro I had previously loaded (Mageia 2 - 32 bit BIOS mode), and added it to its menu. And yes, the EFI grub loader is able to load it. But the grub menu seems to still live in the Mint partition, so I guess Mint has to stay...


You didn't create a /boot partition? If you had, the main part of grub should have ended up there instead of in the Mint system folder.
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....
