Phillip, have read your links above. To add, there are some problems
not in your links related to Dell's recovery system, raid, lvm and
others.......but not to denigrate your specific issue which is the
failure to install by "install grub-pc" and you have found
success by "sudo apt-get install grub-pc";  yes, you're right, I cannot
see the point arguing that it should just work with "install grub-pc"
and not just "sudo apt-get install grub-pc". You do not seem to have
read how to use 'sudo' and 'apt-get' rather than understanding how to
install grub.

Are there any more specific issues with grub you like to bring up
rather than saying I haven't read fully?
