I haven't used mailing lists before and I have problem with installing
grub2 from Windows operating system.

I have an USB3 16GB drive where I want Grub2 to be installed.
But I constantly get these warnnings and errors:

*grub-install.exe --boot-directory="F:\." --target="i386-pc" "\\?\F:"*
Installing for i386-pc platform.
grub-install.exe: warning: File system `fat' doesn't support embedding.
grub-install.exe: warning: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be
installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are
UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged..
grub-install.exe: error: will not proceed with blocklists.
Is there something I have to do before installing Grub2 into my USB3 flash
drive? Please advise.

The operating system is: Windows 10 Home
