[ubuntu-uk] Curious installer behaviour .....

Hi there .... Any thoughts on this behaviour? My main desktop machine
has two hard drives. I always run current stable on one and testing on
the other, using testing as a matter of course but having stable
available for when testing breaks.
I installed Vivid onto the drive where Trusty had been. I used the
defaults and installed to the entire drive. For some reason, grub had
been installed to the other drive, and the partitioning on the Vivid
installation was bizarre - /dev/sdb1 was a small (500 MB) Fat 32
partition, with /dev/sdb2 as the main ext4 partition. The swap
partition was as expected.
I could not install grub to this drive. My workaround was to disconnect
the other drive and re-install. That gave me the expected
partitioning. I'm really curious as to what was going on. Any thoughts?
