    VIRL bare-metal failed Executing 'grub-install /dev/nvme0n1'. failed. this is a fatal error

    Eric

      I'm having trouble performing a baremetal install of VIRL 1.6.65 on my Dell Server.  I keep getting " failed Executing 'grub-install /dev/nvme0n1'. failed. this is a fatal error"  I suspect it has something to do with the Partition Table: gpt.
      Any assistance I can get would be great.

       

      When I run the grub-install command manually I get the following error:

      sudo grub-install /dev/nvme0n1

      Installing for i386-pc platform.

      gurb-install: error: failed to get canonical path of 'aufs'.

      I've attached the /var/logs from the installer.

      System details:

      PowerEdge R730xd with NVME and 11 drives.

      RAM: 512.00 GB

      CPU: 2x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 v4 @ 2.40GHz

      NIC:  MLNX 40Gb 2P ConnectX3Pro Adpt

       

      The disk label is of type: gpt

      I have the TMP disabled and I also turned off UEIF mode.
