comment How can I discover which bootloader is installed where?
@sawdust we don't get as far as a menu. Just "Grub loading; Welcome to Grub;" and then the error. Normally I would expect a menu and then autoboot after a timeout of 10s. But I'm not getting that far. Hence the question about "how do I figure out what is there." Maybe my job is just to reinstall everything :-(
