  Oneiric 20111011 Ubiquity bootloader install fail on /dev/sda

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  "an error occurred and it is not possible to install the bootloader at the specified location"
  The specified location is IDE /dev/sda  the main hard drive on this Aspire One nebook with Windoze 7, Meerkat, and the target pre-release image Ocelot install.
  The install is running off the USB stick
  There is also a usb hard drive 
  bootloader fails on /dev/sda the internal hard drive and /dev/sdc the USB hard drive.
  Continuing without boot loader.  Good luck, since Grub is now screwed up on the main hard drive.
  Attempted to do manual sudo update-grub and it claimed it  "can't find device for / (is /dev mounted?)"
  Will try reboot on usb  hard drive....
