view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all. I've recently been trying to shift back into Ubuntu after leaving Debian Squeeze, but I have been having some troubles with installation. I downloaded Xubuntu 11.10 AMD desktop and wrote it to a USB drive. Xubuntu will boot to the live desktop fine (that's what I'm typing this from) but any attempt to install the OS the my hard drive will fail with an error message. The error message claims the the installation of grub failed and asks for a alternate location to install grub, upon closing the dialog the installer crashes. I am running a Toshiba NB300 laptop and have a GPT partiti (Hardware)
