I use EasyBCD (from windows) as my dual-boot OS manager, because I’m often trying different distros and it’s easy to handle the boot inicialization. So I have a /boot partition where when I’m installing the distro, I just point there to install GRUB (in my case the /boot is in sda5). This method worked for me to install until now any fedora, debian, *buntu family and OpenSuse, for example.
But when installing both Arch or Antergos, I’ve found that GRUB just could be installed on sda, not on sdaX (where my /boot resides)
Is there some special reason for that? Is it possible to install on this approach?
Yes, some could say it’s nonsense to have 2 boot managers. The reason is that I’m just playing safe, once this is a shared PC and perhaps I may not have enough knowledge to fix if something goes wrong. I’m still learning and hope to not have this kind of problem anytime soon.
Thanks a lot!
