Executing 'grub-install /dev/sda' failed.
This is a fatal error.
Sorry, an error occurred and it was not possible to install the bootloader at the specified location.
Choose a different device to install the bootloader on:
Continue without a bootloader.
Cancel the installation.
No action follows selecting an alternative option and I am eventually forced to shutdown the system from the menu, to exit.
My PC has four hard disks in the bays and all are empty (formatted NTFS) except one, with Win 7 installed on it. Interestingly I do not experience this error when trying to install an alternative distro (Bunsen Labs), however I then run into problems with support for my graphics card, which is another story. I would prefer to install Linux Mint - any solutions out there?
