I'm aware of --force parameter,
I would like to know what are the downsides of using blocklist method and how it might be possible to avoid using --force parameter to make proper installation of Grub from a Windows system.

What exactly should be done to install grub without a blocklist way.

Add  --force  parameter to allow using blocklist:

grub-install.exe --boot-directory="F:\." --target="i386-pc" "\\?\F:" -- force
