Well, did you point Calamares where to install grub or does it install grub not at all? Also which version did you use?

.. the boot manager is on the first disk (hda), in the windows disk (paragon).

Why didn't you install it to MBR as the first option suggests? Selecting system partition mostly fails ... Works just fine on my end.

thank you very much , but the suggestion is too much for my skills . The option to install grub in a specific partition is critical , in my opinion , for every installer , because it avoids overwriting it every time you try a new distribution ( and maybe do damage ) . Thanks again anyway :D

@franke: please open an issue for this and add as much information as possible. Exact version of calamares (pacman -Q | grep calamares), Installation log in debug mode (install with calamares from terminal with 'sudo calamares -d'), list of your partition scheme and full error message.

I can not register there to place the issue , so I put here all the information :
Calamares - dev - 1.80r1654
sDA windows
sdb1 installation in question ( failed )
sdb6 Manjaro
sdb3 PcLinux .
The installation log can send attached , so the full error message .
Bottom Line : This happens with xfs , with btrfs grub is installed , but is not seen by the primary boot manager ( paragon of hda )

Hi franke, I created an issue (CAL-347) for you. Please keep track on it. What was the issue in registering?

if I try to register I get this page:
Your JIRA administrator has not yet configured this contact form.
Perhaps the only way is to register on GitHub and enter with that account.
I follow the issue and hope to help in some way. :)

Ah, right. Works currently only with github account as we use Jira just for the advanced bugtracker options and management.
