Has anyone succeeded in nesting VC bootloader into GRUB/GRUB2 so it can be shown as a GRUB entry? If yes, can U provide a complete list of instructions how to achieve it, please? Do U guys think it might interest the Dev Team in working out an official solution? (there sure are many more important issues and I don't know how to make it worth for Them to be involved in this one)

The issue is not new and was mentioned at least in 2015-10 (see topic https://sourceforge.net/p/veracrypt/discussion/technical/thread/8e010ef0/

Some people've tried to achieve it by "extracting the MBR created by VeraCrypt and putting it in a place accessible by GRUB (for example /boot)" as Mounir IDRASSI had written but with no luck. The only successful approach is to press Esc in VC bootloader to proceed to GRUB. It would be great if some linux gurus could help us work out a solution.
