Why install GRUB though?

Im making an Operating System… Im testing out if i can work on Cloud9 … https://github.com/Bone-Project/BoneOS

I’m guessing Cloud9 is not the best place to make and test your own operating system. That said, try it in an SSH workspace and that will work better. Hosted workspaces won’t play nice.

@bradydowling @vasilenko93 problem was because i didnt update packages. sudo apt-get update . And yes its tottaly fine to use Cloud9 to make an OS. I use Cloud9IDE + NoVNC @EtienneWan provided us.
