grub installation to boot partition fails
Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
I'm trying to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.10 (I did 12.04 before
but discovered it has unsolved bugs for nvidia graphics).
I used this tutorial (that was actually for Ubuntu 11.04, so maybe
that's part of the problem). http://linuxbsdos.com/ask/2011/10/dual-
I followed the tutorial completely, but at the end, when installation
of Ubuntu should have completed, I got an error saying that
installation of the boot loader failed. I tried installing in the
default partition, but I got the same error message.
I have a Dell XPS L502X.
Hope this helps.
