Oneiric 20111011 Ubiquity bootloader install fail on /dev/sda
Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
"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....
