GRUB2 - Installation help required

I am trying to install grub 2 in Fedora 24. It doesn't seem to work successful.

It shows me the message like this.
virtual HD
grub2-install: error: cannot find a GRUB drive for dev/sda. Check your device.map.

Flash drive

grub2-install: warning: File system ‘fat’ doesn't support embedding.
grub2-install: error: embedding is not possible, but this is required for cross-disk install.

Re: Hi, I am new here.

Firstly, I would recommend PM-ing one of the moderators and asking them to change your title--many people are just going to not bother looking, whereas if your title is something like grub won't install into partition you will get better answers.

Anyway, what was the command you ran. That's a common error when you try to install into a partition rather than a drive. For example, did you do grub2-install /dev/sda or /dev/sda1?

Welcome to the forum, I've changed the title for the reasons stated by smr54 above.
