SYNOPSIS

grub-install [OPTION] install_device

DESCRIPTION

Install GRUB on your drive.
-h, --help print this message and exit
-v, --version
  print the version information and exit
--root-directory=DIR
  install GRUB images under the directory DIR instead of the root directory
--grub-shell=FILE
  use FILE as the grub shell
--no-floppy
  do not probe any floppy drive
--force-lba
  force GRUB to use LBA mode even for a buggy BIOS
--recheck
  probe a device map even if it already exists

This option is unreliable and its use is strongly discouraged.

INSTALL_DEVICE can be a GRUB device name or a system device filename.

grub-install copies GRUB images into the DIR/boot directory specfied by --root-directory, and uses the grub shell to install grub into the boot sector.
