At the partitioning/formatting screens did you choose manual?? (you can
always try going back from the grub screen).
Did you specify a device to be made bootable??
If look at the install messages (Alt+F4) at the grub install page is
there anything unusual??
Did you choose GRUB2 or GRUB legacy??
Is this a standard hard drive partitioning scheme (no LVM, RAID or
encryption)??

Cheers

Default testing install grub install loop

Hi,

I am trying to install from a testing net-install CD a little over a
year old. I have a hard drive problem and this is all I have to build a
new system.


I get a screen to choose the devices on which to install grub. No
matter what combination I check the next screen tells me I have not
chosen any devices on which to install grub. Is there a workaround from
this point?


TIA,

Paul Scott
