Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

The installation of ubuntu 9.10 from live CD seems to be ok until the boot loader was installed.
I tried to use a boot partition.
If I do not use a boot partition the installation works well. But however I want to hava a boot partition.

regards joerg
