I want to do exactly this,


But when I run grub-install /dev/sda5,

warning: File system `ext2' doesn't support embedding. 
warning: Embedding is not possible.  GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists.  However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their  use is discouraged.. 
error: will not proceed with blocklists.

I get this error. How should I fix it?

  • As it says it is not recommended and may be unreliable. Better to use MBR and use grub to dual boot. See man grub-install If you really want blocklists, use --force Learn how to repair grub with live installer manually and with Boot-Repair as you will also need to know that. – oldfred Feb 9 at 3:56
