    Install grub2's boot loader to sdc's MBR. Do not install to all the others. And then set BIOS to boot drive that is sdc. Boot Repair should be able to do that.

    Your bios_grub is huge. It just needs to be 1MB as it is a place in gpt partitioned systems for grub2's core.img which is about 32KB.

    Update - I was wondering why it was blocking grub install. It looks like you formatted your bios_grub, it has to be unformated. Use gparted and change to unformated.

    Other ways to install grub2's boot loader.
