I have Asus laptop with 24GB SSD and 1TB HDD and the main idea was to use all SSD space for
/ and 10GB HDD space for
Swap and rest of the HDD space for
Going through the installation when asked about installation type I chose 'Something else' and managed partitions on my own following the main idea and placing
/home partitions as logical and
/ as primary. All HDD partitions were on
/dev/sda and SSD partition was on
In 'Device for bootloader installation' dropdown I chose
/dev/sdb as there was my
/ partition and went through with the installation.
All went well until grub tried to be installed - I got message:
Executing 'grub-install /dev/sdb' failed. Fatal Error..
Now I am not sure what could have gone sideways and I would appreciate the help.
Also it got me thinking do I even need grub bootloader if I am planning on having only Elementary OS installed on my laptop?
