Bootloader Install failed (LM 14)

Postby geekmason » Sat Nov 24, 2012 10:03 pm

Hi,

I am having issues with the bootloader installation at the end of the LiveCD install wizard.

I have configured my system with 3 x 1TB hard drives in fakeRAID (BIOS setup) and it prompts me to install the bootloader to a defferent device, not at all or cancel installation. I have tried all the device locations in the list and it fails each time. I also tried without and LM wont boot at all.

I'm pretty inexperienced with Linux installs so any help would be most appreciated.

Hi again,

I think I fixed it. By "I" I mean this guide/app seemed to work it all out.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair

I told the app to just go ahead and automatically repair it. It did stop at a few times and asked me to provide some input in a console menu.

It also provided a complete dialogue to this address: http://paste2.org/p/2518495 Not sure what a lot of that means, so I'd be interested to hear from someone here who could summarise what the issue was an how it solved it.

Thanks :)
