Bug Description

Installing along side windows 7 about 3/4 through the install the installer popped up with grub installer unable to install on specified location.... Tried to install on every other given partition that would not overwrite the current OS. However every time it was the same error. I love using Ubuntu and have been for years. This is the first problem like this I have encountered. Thank you for your help on this.
