Re: Its possible to install EFI Grub without whole Linux, if yes how?

A boot manager is part of the UEFI specification, every UEFI must contain one. The only part that's optional is actually offering a boot menu. So in some cheap implementations you may have to enter the UEFI itself to switch. That is theory. At least my Toshiba Portege Z20 (Toshiba branded UEFI ther...

Boot device selection is usually accessed via Esc during boot but your system may have a different hotkey like F8 or yet something else. Its not such simple, some desktop board can select UEFI boot ent...

I know if need to make it to work is fine, but otherwise it ...

Re: Its possible from Grub2 on MBR disc start EFI boot on other drive?

Im not using Secure boot option.

If you boot Grub in Legacy/BIOS mode, you cannot launch an EFI bootloader. And if you boot Grub in EFI mode, you cannot launch an Legacy/BIOS bootloader. That's it.

Re: Its possible from Grub2 on MBR disc start EFI boot on other drive?

It's possible to have a standalone grub, but you will have to maintain it yourself, in particular make changes to the config file everytime you want to add a new OS or loader. I'm not sure you want to do that. I do, im used to edit grub.cfg manually because autogeneration has lots of flaws, i just ...
