Bug Description

I started it and after a while it asked me to unmount partitions. I did that and it mounted them again. I Unmounted and played along. But that is an endless loop.
In the meantime it has spawned 39 processes and killing them top-down achieves nothing.

I attached a screenshot of the processes.

The reason why I started it in the first place is that after a clean install from a Ubuntu 14.04 DVD the new installation wouldn't start.
My hardware is AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core Processor × 12 on an ASUS Prime A320M-K motherboard with
2WD Red WD20EFRX Sata HDDs.

I'll reboot and retry it.

thx Andreas for the report. Can you reproduce? if yes, please can you give more details, like on which Ubuntu version, and attach output of 'sudo boot-repair -i', or even your boot-info summary if it works.
