I have 2 SSDs, one with Windows 10 (sdd) and one that hopefully will have Linux Mint (sdc) on. I also have 2 HDDs that are in a raid array but this is exclusively for windows really and shouldn't really interfere.
I'm working with a bootable USB stick. I go into the OS then go to install Mint. Everything seems to run fine then nearer the end the bootloader issue arises.
Executing 'grub-install /dev/sda' failed. Fatal Error.
sda bit is what throws me. I've used linux a lot in the past but never understood the whole bootloader/grub scenario. I think the main issue is that in the past I've had Ubuntu on a HDD and set up EasyBCD to choose OS at boot rather than grub. I removed the Ubuntu drive and in it's place is an empty SSD as mentioned before. I uninstalled said EasyBCD but it's still showing the same boot up menu even after installation. Where should I be putting my bootloader? I want to dual boot Windows and Mint with them being on seperate drives.
There is also an option to install alongside Windows 10 but I assume that it'll put Mint on the same drive as the Windows one. So I normally go for 'erase everything' and then select the drive I want for Mint (sdc). Any thoughts or advice is welcome. I'm sure there've been a million questions like this but I couldn't find anyone that matched up with my problem.
