Ubuntu: How can I move grub (“multiboot”) from usb to hard drive



Question:

I am new to linux. I installed xubuntu using a usb live disk. It installed correctly however grub (the multi os loader) is on the usb. When I boot without the usb it only loads windows. The installation is good since I can boot from the usb, once booted I can remove the stick and verify that the installation is on the hard drive.
How do i move safely move the boot mechanism from the usb to the hard drive?


Solution:1

Just found the answer to my own question in case someone needs this in the future. The trick is to use boot-repair and make sure to select advance then install the mbr on the main hard drive (eg sba1).

Solution:2

Boot with your usb attached, and type at a root terminal:

grub-setup /dev/sda

Remove your usb and reboot.
