What distro is this out of curiosity? Also, what type of partition is /dev/sda8? Is it FAT32? Also, what are on the other partitions - 8 partition is a hell of a lot for a single drive.
Its KDE Neon (Ubuntu Based Distro) and 8 partitions is perfectly fine.

what did you do to get there? grub should be installed to the drive itself, so /dev/sda, not a partition (sdaX indicates a partition).
Not in EFI Instances, it would be installed to a Fat32 Partition. Even Grub legacy can be installed in MBR mode to a set partition, though I imagine he is using ext4 which I don't believe supports it.

Hi Guys, I'm having a problem when Dual Booting a Linux distro in my laptop..
I'm getting an error which is "Unable to Install Grub In Dev/sda (the partition. I chose to install grub)
how to Dual boot kde neon correctly. I'm a beginner, please explain it very easily....
And if I set a efi partition and install boot loader into that partition it also gives me an error.. it is "failed to install grub-amd64" ... Please help me...
Make sure Secure Boot is turned off in your BIOS and your Bootable media was made in GPT mode using DD. If you are unsure, use etcher. Otherwise if all that is good and your install was completed but with just a grub error, try the following.
Boot into your Live Install Media and open a terminal. Run fdisk -l Find your 2 partitions, one should be whatever your root that you assigned during install and one should have its type as EFI. example. /dev/sda1 mkdir /mnt mount /dev/rootpartition /mnt mkdir /mnt/boot/EFI mount /dev/efipartition /mnt/boot/EFI chroot /mnt grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --bootloader-id="KDE Neon" --recheck grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg exit reboot
Ubuntu likes to do things differently so hopefully this still applies.
