Hi for all !

Once again, I'm sorry for possibly overly emotional tone of my remarks!

AT, I am also not a native english speaker, but that does not absolve us of the need for correct usage of terminology, and it cannot justify our use of profanities or improper manners, but all the same, glad to see your post.

Now lets get down to cleaning up the mess, if it is still an issue that you need the external drive for booting up your desktop system. If that is no longer the issue, you can ignore the rest of this post.

Some summary/assumptions...
o Lubuntu is at external drive and the grub is set to desktop hard drive mbr. o You have at least one linux distro using grub2 boot at the the desktop system.

Boot up the desktop linux distro with the external drive plugged in.
At the terminal of that linux distro, type the following...
sudo grub-install /dev/sda


You will then be able to boot up your desktop system without the external drive attached. You will also be able to see an option to boot the Lubuntu OS at the desktop grub itself, and it can boot Lubuntu (if the external drive is attached).

Hope this clears up the issue, and if you have other issues or if the assumptions are not correct, please revert.
