    doh

    sorry


    1. Type mkdir /mnt/USB && mount /dev/sdx1 /mnt/USB (replacing xwith your actual usb device)
    2. Type grub-install --force --no-floppy --root-directory=/mnt/USB /dev/sdx (replacing x with your actual USB device)
    3. Type cd /mnt/USB/boot/grub

    check if you typed /dev/sdg or /dev/sdg1 - should be /dev/sdg

    sdg is the disk - sdg1 is the first partition - the drive volume

    It is trying to install grub to the mbr - not the partition

    Package p7zip-full is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source


    E: Package 'p7zip-full' has no installation candidate
