 Hi Chaps,
 
 So, I am going ahead with this (taken from Petters' mail
 message) :
 
 ------------------------------------------------------------
 1. 'dpkg -l | grep grub'
 This lists all the installed grub packages
 2. 'apt-get purge <list of packages from above step>'
 This removes them
 3. 'apt-mark hold <list of removed packages>'
 This prevents them from being installed again
 ------------------------------------------------------------
 
 Makes sense ?
 
 TIA,
 
 s.

Chaps ,

Thank you all for your feedback.
I can't say "thank you" enough times.
Thanks to Oli , Petter , Ralph and Tom.

I'll try it and let you know of my findings.

THANK YOU,

spyros
