Ah ok, I guessed it might be, so if I select sda it should be ok ...:eek: I only have have one lvm(pve) having removed the other one - I know I've screwed up Linux before 'fiddling' with grub

If I install it to all three I guess that'll be ok too ?

I expect that you will get errors and installation will fail on the other two.
Thanks for the tip, I've backed up the VM's just in case to another drive. I'll wait and see if anyone confirms /dev/sda but I'm pretty sure that's the best option. It's a pity Proxmox doesn't have a built in backup for itself.
 
For the record lsblk looks like this

and fstab

Code:
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
/dev/pve/root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
UUID=F2C4-F88F /boot/efi vfat defaults 0 1
/dev/pve/swap none swap sw 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

Yes, reboots fine. But after a apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y I get

Then do the dpkg --configure -a I get the choice where to put grub

Please never run apt-get upgrade, always use apt-get dist-upgrade for Proxmox.

Please fix your DNS settings or use another Debian mirror.

Just select /dev/sda (with the spacebar) and then select Ok.

er Ok:eek:, I just liked to confirm before I did anything ... Not a lot of choice really

The DNS is pfSense I think, I've got it very tight it blocks github sometimes :rolleyes:...

It feels a bit like what wire do I cut yellow, blue,red, green, pink :)
