[SOLVED] Unable to install bootloader (GRUB) on Asrock B450 Pro4

I upgraded to Ryzen recently, and thus had to switch motherboards. Originally, my motherboard didn't see my boot partition as bootable so I ran a live arch USB to recreate the partition and GRUB. My old PC used the BIOS boot instead of UEFI. Installing grub with --target=i386-pc, I am led to grub showing "Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions". Trying UEFI with this workaround (as I was running into the same issue as the poster on stackexchange) leads to the same. Note that when installing UEFI I have the boot partition on a different disk because my BIOS boot partition was too small, and I don't want to resize my root or /home partitions.

Nevermind. I forgot to re-generate my fstab when creating with --target=i386-pc. Working now. YAY.
