Unable to install GRUB when installing Linux
I am a bit of a Linux Newbie and have already had Linux Ubuntu installed on my laptop. After Running a life CD of Linux Mint, I realised I would prefer Mint as all my laptop hardware (Speakers, Microphone etc) seemed to work on it and not Ubuntu. I wanted to delete Ubuntu. Having never performed this task before I booted in to my Windows 7 OS and accessed the Disk Management utility where I just deleted the Linux volumes. This act broke my current GRUB and so I could not boot into any OS. I then inserted my windows 7 CD and conducted a repair. Now I am able to boot straight into windows 7.
Now when I come to install Linux Mint everything is fine. But I get this error near the end of the installation:
Which then leads to this dialogue box:
Now when I boot up, everything just resumes as normal to windows 7. I have no idea how to fix this. The reason being is that my system complicated and the people who installed Ubuntu on it before had some problems because of it. Here are my laptop specifications.
Dell Alienware M17x R3
16 GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM
Two 256 GB SSD in RAID 0 configuration
1.5 GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M
2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2860QM 2.5 GHz (3.6 GHz with Turbo Boost, 8 MB Cache)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
This is what it looks like when I am in the Linux installation partition manager (after I deleted Linux. So Windows 7 only). Maybe someone can see a problem.
Then when you scroll down to the end:
Any help is much appreciated.
