Bug Description

Maverick Beta, installing Ubuntu on a latop (Acer Aspire 3104 WLMi) having only a Win* installed previously.

- Installing form an USB key made using Ubuntu's "Startup Disk Creator" on another Ubuntu machine.

- Install goes well, installing "besides Windows" using all-defaults from installer.

- After install is over, noticed Grub's been installed onto USB key, not onto HD.

- Symptoms :

- WIthout USB key inserted, system won't boot at all.

- With USB key inserted, Ubuntu will start (from hard drive).
