i filed the bug exactly because i did so: i chose "efi system partition" in the
partition selection section; it was already formatted as FAT and labelled EFI,
but grub was installed in the wrong partition. (note: i'm quite sure i did the
right thing because the same partition and process works in fedora)
i also noted that after changing the fstab, grub configuration files are saved
in /boot/efi, but something else (i don't know what) in still installed in the
wrong disk, as the bios (uefi) says ubuntu is in the first disk, not the second
(the one where my /boot/efi is located).
thanks for you work
