Bug Description

Grub fail to install during standard install of Ubuntu. I had installed Linux Mint 19 on my old MacBook Pro, but changed my mind and decided to install Ubuntu 18.04. During install I got errors saying it could not mount sda1 and finally at the end of install it Grub would not install. I tried again this time creating my own partitions sda1/ sda1/boot and sda1/home. This time it did not complain about mounting sda1 ... but still failed to install Grub.
