Hi Dale,

Thanks for your response. I will recreate it and try to capture what grub-install says.

The response from the attempted Debian 9.5 install occurs at the end of the lengthy install and appears to work OK. Just doesn't boot when done.

It would be helpful to know more details of what 'should' be in the MBR boot. I tend to be a low-level guy and so try to understand things from that side.

Of course, you need to tell us the command that you executed, and what
grub-install said.  And also the contents of any files that grub-install
is using as input.

I do know these sorts of installations are tricky ... grub-install has
to figure out how the BIOS will present the SD card to Grub when it
first starts running, so it can tell Grub how to finish starting up the
installation on the SD card.
