You want to scale the lipid positions to what? InflateGro is used to pack
the lipid molecules around a protein, but you want to simulate only lipids,
so no point in using it. If you want to simulate a lipid bilayer, you can
continue with one taken from Tieleman's site (but with what objective?).

How to remove this error?
InflateGro always removes all water (SOL) molecules. So you need to
resolvate the bilayer and update your .top file accordingly. Go through the
