** Description changed:

  On a fresh install of 12.04.1 on an otherwise empty disk, grub complains about not being able to write to the mbr. After a reboot, the system does not boot. Attempting a repair with boot-repair shows that grub-install crashes with a bus error. A log of boot-repair is at
  http://paste.ubuntu.com/1198584/  (see the very end of that log).
+ 
+ Added: for completeness, in Lucid and Karmic the grub installation on
+ the mbr never caused any problems.
