I not type commands, i use Bunsenlabs (debian) installer, that asks me "want you install grub to mbr into device?" i did select "Yes", before, i did select no and install grub on "/dev/sdc1" and grub did not work, but now grub install to "/dev/sdc".

I get that you installed to the MBR and why that would work.
***Kindly give details of what you did.***

Snake used the Bunsenlabs installer to reinstall GRUB to the MBR.

You aren't using Bunsenlabs (you are using Void) so you should probably start a new topic for your separate question. Snake has already marked this thread "Solved."

this is how I did it, afterwords. dd the iso to a USB boot it, then let it get started in boot then stick your other USBstick in another USB Port, go into Install GUI then when it gets to the partitions which one to use go into expert mode, select your USB Stick install Debain, when when it gets to the install Grub, do it, select to install grub on that usbstck /dev/sdx

in like flint

realitively easy
