I'm trying to boot a regular Linux partition from VirtualBox on Windows. I found this tutorial and followed it. Basically, this just creates an ISO file of the GRUB configuration so that VirtualBox can simply read the partition as if it was a normal virtual machine. However, when it comes to creating an ISO, I don't seem to have /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc, as the tutorial requires.

The only folders I have in /usr/lib/grub/ are called x86_64-efi and x86_64-efi-signed. I did try to create an ISO from both of those but without luck.

I have Windows 10 installed on one SSD and then installed Mint 19 in dual boot configuration on another SSD. My GRUB version is 2.02-2ubuntu8.9, so it is the latest.

  • google /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc – jsotola Jan 31 at 3:04
  • I tried that but i couldn't find anything about why I don't have that folder – Johannes Mols Jan 31 at 3:07
  • yes, but you can find information about how to obtain the folder and its contents – jsotola Jan 31 at 3:12
  • I honestly couldn't. I couldn't even find what it is good for. Whatever I search for, I always find the same StackExchange entries that talk about a different problem. – Johannes Mols Jan 31 at 12:02
