Thanks Yin. I have been trying different things since my last post and have left 1 Mb before the primary partition. Still wasn't having any joy when I discovered that Grub2 does not work with ext2. Have reformatted with ext4 and the grub-install command worked without a hitch, reporting "no errors" when it finished. However the pc still won't boot. I have been playing with the BIOS settings using UEFI then disabling it and using legacy boot. To no avail. I'm still not sure how grub sees the flash memory; as a floppy, SD card, USB stick or HDD? My original install parameters were wrong too so I changed the command to: "grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/mmcblk0p1/boot /dev/mmcblk0".
