To find out where GRUB 2 is installed, the user can run the following commands:

    Device: sudo grub-probe -t device /boot/grub

    UUID: sudo grub-probe -t fs_uuid /boot/grub

That's nice as far as it goes, which is no help to me. I'm trying to reconfigure a broken multiboot system, and need to know where Grub2 was or should have been installed while booted to an OS with no Grub2 installed. Is this covered somewhere on ? Looking at the index nothing jumps out at me.

What I think happened is that Ubuntu was installed, but without bootloader installation anywhere. /boot/grub obviously contains Grub2 files, but there is no grub.cfg there, thus no way to estimate cmdline options to get it to boot from some other bootloader. I see nothing in /etc/default/grub or /etc/grub.d/ that would seem to indicate whether Grub2 was or should have been installed to MBR, or /boot or /. How do I tell?
