Same message printed on the screen when just run grub-install, suspect it is grub 2.0 bug or defect….

I encountered an error when installing grub 2.00 on my Linux system(boot from EFI BIOS), the error showed “source_dir doesn't exist. Please specify --target or –directory”

The error occurred after I run this command:

#grub-install –boot-directory=/boot /dev/sda


On EFI just run grub-install with no options, it finds /boot/efi/EFI and if necessary creates /boot/efi/EFI/grub and puts grubx64.efi there, and also writes an entry in NVRAM so it should get used by default instead of gummiboot.
