... i meant to also suggest you keep GRUB2 et al, because installing
to a partition turned out to be a massive PITA for numerous reasons.

my recommended setup is GRUB2 on GPT layout (1 bios_grub/EFI,  1 swap,
and 1 system btrfs partition), with the actual system installed to
(system)/__active and grub installed to (system)/boot (similar to the
original article).
