my command is:
grub-install.exe --boot-directory=F:/boot --target=i386-pc //./PHYSICALDRIVE2
then show the error:
Installing for i386-pc platform.
grub-install.exe: error: attempt to read or write outside of disk `hostdisk/\\\\.\\PHYSICALDRIVE2'.

similar command in manjaro linux successfully install on the same gpt disk.
