GRUB2 installed from Linux Mint Debian xfce onto ThinkPad x120e not working


I got just recently a new ThinkPad x120e, and installed Linux Mint Debian xfce onto it. The installation went relatively smoothly, but after rebooting, I got the 'Operating System not found' error. I reinstalled the OS, to the same result.

I am relatively certain the problem is with GRUB2 as I can boot into the OS from SystemRescueCD.

Does anybody know how to solve this?

Did you install Grub to the Root Directory or the Master Boot Record (MBR). When you install to the entire hard drive you have to do the MBR.

I installed to the Master Boot Record rather than a specific partition, yes.

This thread might be more helpful than I. I would pay close attention to the replies from NEXUS and EDDY1:
