After reboot:
$ uname -a
Linux komputilo 4.20.3-gnu #1 SMP 1 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The i386 is technically incorrect according to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_80386 and

I think we should drop the line and keep "Installation finished. No
error reported."

Hi, this message is actually from grub-install and is perfectly
correct: it means it's intalling in legacy (bios) mode. "No error
reported" is also from grub and is very confusing…

Maybe we should

1) prefix messages from other tools with the name of the tool, and
2) hide these tool messages by default behind descriptive messages like
“installing bootloader”

What do you think?
