Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Installing Dual boot (Win MCE, Mythbuntu) on computer with 2 drives. 1st drive has NTFS partition, then 15G root, 4G swap. 2nd drive first partition is JFS and labeled /var (best I could do for media drive with installer), then final partition is FAT32 for sharing. Seemed to get pretty far along without problems. Toward the end I noticed GRUB install, then failure.

1. Mythbuntu 11.04
2. ISO install
3. Expected Dualboot Machine
4. Got an install failure.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Reviewing your log files attached to this bug report it seems that there is a problem with your installation media (CD/DVD) or with your hardware. Please retry your installation with new media and if it still fails I'd recommend testing your CD drive with other media. In the event that is is not in fact an error with your installation media or hardware please set the bug's status back to New. Thanks and good luck!
