I have waiting 20-30 min for installation downloading file and so on and finally installation finished with message grupb2 installation failed.

Your disk is currently partitioned to boot in bios mode, but you booted the 16.04 installer in EFI mode. A warning message prompted you that this could be a problem and recommended performing a bios mode install instead, but you chose not to. You either need to perform the bios mode install, or partition the disk using GPT and set up an EFI system partition to install in EFI mode. This will be done for you if you choose the "use entire disk" guided install option.

Changed in grub-installer (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid

@psusi There is no warnings message and I cannot perform bios mode install on this disk..
I have an other EFI disk with OS installed.
