    I am doing an update and upgrade using antiX-Update.

    I got a box with the following advisement, but I don’t know what to do:
    The grub-pc package is being upgraded. This menu allows you to select │
    │ which devices you’d like grub-install to be automatically run for, if │
    │ any. │
    │ │
    │ Running grub-install automatically is recommended in most situations, to │
    │ prevent the installed GRUB core image from getting out of sync with GRUB │
    │ modules or grub.cfg. │
    │ │
    │ If you’re unsure which drive is designated as boot drive by your BIOS, │
    │ it is often a good idea to install GRUB to all of them. │
    │ │
    │ Note: it is possible to install GRUB to partition boot records as well, │
    │ and some appropriate partitions are offered here. However, this forces │
    │ GRUB to use the blocklist mechanism, which makes it less reliable, and │
    │ therefore is not recommended.

    If I click OK, then I get the below box:
    ┤ Configuring grub-pc ├────────────────┐
    │ GRUB install devices: │
    │ │
    │ [ ] /dev/sda (80026 MB; Hitachi_HTS541680J9SA00) │
    │ [ ] – /dev/sda1 (77845 MB; /) │
    │ │
    │ │
    │ <Ok> │
    │ │

    Note: I only have one drive on the laptop.
    If I choose either of the above choices, I get the below box:
    You chose not to install GRUB to any devices. If you continue, the boot │
    │ loader may not be properly configured, and when this computer next │
    │ starts up it will use whatever was previously in the boot sector. If │
    │ there is an earlier version of GRUB 2 in the boot sector, it may be │
    │ unable to load modules or handle the current configuration file. │
    │ │
    │ If you are already using a different boot loader and want to carry on │
    │ doing so, or if this is a special environment where you do not need a │
    │ boot loader, then you should continue anyway. Otherwise, you should │
    │ install GRUB somewhere. │
    │ │
    │ Continue without installing GRUB? │
    │ │
    │ <Yes> <No>

    If I choose “No”, then it takes me back to the first box above.
    I have not chosen “yes” yet.
    This is where I am stuck and don’t know what to do.

    To select an option it’s the spacebar key, if I remember right.
    /dev/sda should be right.

    That worked fine.
    Thanks for the help.
