I'm new to Linux and was just wondering what blocklists are and why they are considered unreliable.
Example of my problem:
will@Will-PC:~$ sudo burg-install /dev/sda1 /usr/sbin/burg-setup: warn: Attempting to install GRUB to a partition instead of the MBR. This is a BAD idea.. /usr/sbin/burg-setup: warn: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged.. /usr/sbin/burg-setup: error: if you really want blocklists, use --force
The problem is:
/dev/sda1 is my MBR.
Any description of blocklists or advice to my problem will be appreciated!
