Bootloader (GRUB) installation failure
I had an 80gb hard disk running dualboot XP and Ubuntu. Later i managed to add another 500gb hard disk already having 5 partitions (which was earlier running XP). I made this new hd as master making older one as slave. Now, I wanted to get my older grub back, but since it was on slave's partition, i couldn't reinstall it, then i deleted the old linux partition from 80gb drive and wanted to have a clean install of ubuntu on my new hd removing Xp from over there. I used a Ubuntu 10.04 live CD to install it. I erased the Xp partition, and tried instaling ubuntu on the same. But, finally it gave a fatal error:
"grub bootloader installation failed"
1)Continue and try manual installation later.
2)Abort the installation
3)Install grub somewhere else.
I tried last point and gave each of my partition's name where it could install, but unfortunately, it couldn't take any of those (neither the master's partition nor slave's). This msg continue to appear. Ultimately i had to use option 1, that led to grub failure after restart and i am not able to reinstall grub now.
I tried installing the same on the last partition of the master, but still the same issue. i am stuck:(
Any helps around!
