I wanted to thank YannBuntu for his work with Boot Repair and the problem of EFI Bios, there are positive results on the ubuntu forums Italian thanks to you, we are trying to help other users and many successful ... I apologize for my English translated from google ...

I have been fighting for a few hours to try and fix my boot but I might now need some help.
I have successfully moved my Linux Mint and Windows partitions to a new SSD. I could boot each of them so I deleted my old partitions.
Now I would like to regenerate my GRUB menu. I tried to use a bootable (Mint) CD and to use boot-repair. I also tried that inside my main Linux installation but I get the same following error:
when boot-repair asks me to type in the following commands inside the terminal, I then get a "GRUB is still installed" error. As a consequence, boot-repair cannot finish its job.
The commands only display that grub-common is not installed and cannot be removed
Here is the bootinfo report: http://paste.debian.net/192417/Code:sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sdb1" apt-get install -fy sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sdb1" dpkg --configure -a sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sdb1" apt-get purge -y --force-yes grub-common
Please could you:
1) boot your Mint CD
2) open a terminal, and indicate the output of the following commands:
(if you prefer, we can continue in French here: http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=509791&p=29 )Code:sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt ls /mnt/sbin /mnt/usr/sbin | grep install
an easy way to downgrade to GRUB Legacy.
(please use it as a very last workaround, it is always better to report GRUB2 bugs in order to improve it)
