    You were 100% right, I went through the install procedure again with /, and therefore /boot, on a normal logical volume instead of a thin volume and it was fine.

    Thanks for your help

    I'm glad you have it working.

    For booting, grub has to manage with BIOS calls. And a thinly provisioned LVM volume is a bit too complex for that.

    If use ext4 you only need /boot outside on its own partition. With BTRFS it is best to just put the whole root outside.
