On a DELL Dimension 9150, I've been trying to install 11.10 from a Live USB. Ubuntu runs fine from the Live USB. On the first install, it failed at the last step, 'unable to write bootloader' to the selected partition, please select another partition.
There were 2 SATA HDs in RAID and in case that was causing the installer some problems, I disabled RAID and disconnected one of the SATA drives (as well as disabling that SATA channel in BIOS).
Went back to the start of the installation, and everything seemed to go smoothly. Got to the reboot point, and removed the install media as instructed.
But when it rebooted, it gives this 'no boot device available' error when it tries to boot from the hard drive.
Any suggestions, please?
