comment Install a Bootloader to Boot Another Partition
Never mind, I got it! Thank you soooooo much!!! I rebooted the computer with GRUB installed to /dev/sdb, and it works! Thank you!

Sorry, I don't know much about GRUB, but I couldn't find any other UUIDs for any other drive. In the fstab file I showed you, you can see that all paths are UUIDs, and basically that's it. There are no /dev/sdb or /dev/sdd parts to edit, since they're comments. Should I just proceed with a reboot? Again, I'm sorry, this is my first time with Kubuntu.

I already installed GRUB onto /dev/sdb. I don't know where "/dev/sdd" came from, since there are only 2 drives on my computer. I will change sdd to sda and see what happens then. Thanks!

Thanks again, Baha, but when I opened the fstab file, I couldn't find any "sdb"s anywhere. Here's the link to my fstab file: (francis-fac.zapto.org/fstab). Please take a look. Thanks!

ok, i'll try that tomorrow. please keep in mind my actual os is on the second partition, and the first partition of my HDD is only for storage. i'll be installing grub on the second partition and i'll change the fstab too. thanks.

I've heard that I can't do this because the BIOS checks the first sector of the HDD for this and my OS is on the second partition of the drive.

I'm sorry, but can you explain what you mean by "all sdb's are sda"? And also, my OS is not on the first partition, and that's the main problem because my BIOS complains "Missing Operating System" when I select my external HDD on boot.
