I'm not sure what would be causing this error. I've updated your topic title and moved it here for help from others with this. Noted that the error seems to be from the step where it would ask you where to install GRUB. As that was an error in the Linux Mint 14 ISOs for certain systems (EFI), you may want to try a Linux Mint 14.1 ISO instead. See description here: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2234
Well, I downloaded the iso at 12:30:00 p.m. Saturday December 1, 2012 (PST) from the Brazil's mirror, so I think that it was already 14.1, am I right?
As I think that maybe my partition table was corrupted somehow after all these attempts, I am about to ask liveCD to rebuild it.. wish me luck
EDIT: Although I reinstalled, the error with the partitions occurred again.
Apparently, for some reason I have not figured out, the system chage the main partition (/) to read-only.
When I restart because of that, the system does not mount or says that the number of blocks in the partition is incorrect.
And a message saying the it could not load the serverX by an internal error.
After several fscks, and I being prepared to download another distro, the system restarted and managed to be ok, seemingly by itself
Sadly, I do not know how long will last my joy, because I did not see what it recouver itself ..
One thing I found strange, after fscks, it changed my partitions (from sda2/sda3/sda4 to sd5/sd6/sd7 respectively).
I am using the system, do not know for how long. But even for me the problem MAY have been resolved, the post may help another poor newbie .. so, anyone who has any information, please share and help
PS Would you move to another category and reedit the title, since the error is not always in the installation?
