Re: Can't install Debian without dedicated /boot partition

You should get some information about how GRUB is installed and works.
GRUB comes in two main parts :
- the core image in various locations (+ boot image in some boot sector
for GRUB BIOS)
- the /boot/grub directory

Yep. I basically said that (in paragraphs you removed from the quote :)).

AFAICS you did not write anything about /boot/grub.

Can you explain why this fails on installation, where /boot/grub can be written?

grub-install must hardcode the location of /boot/grub into the core image. I guess it sees that /boot/grub is encrypted but encryption is not enabled for GRUB.
