This is getting quite annoying and Google isn't proving to be much of assistance.
I've built a new server and it has a total of five devices.
/dev/sda - 2TB HDD
/dev/sdb - 2TB HDD
/dev/sdc - 2TB HDD
/dev/sdd - 2TB HDD
/dev/sde - 60GB SSD
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 Server amd64 on /dev/sde (60GB SSD). I use guided partitioning and use the entire disk (no lvm). All seems to be going well, it's getting near the end of the install and then when it tried to install GRUB, it fails. I suspect because it says it is trying to install to /dev/sda which I don't want it to. Those four 2TB drives I'm going to be configuring in an mdadm RAID5 array once I have Ubuntu installed on the SSD. Why is GRUB trying to install to /dev/sda and not /dev/sde?
