I have installed and used Ubuntu in several computers. But now I have a problem that I don't know how to solve.
I have a Vaio (Product name: vpcz13c5e), it has a SSD 128gb. I decided to install Ubuntu (12.04, but I have tried older versions as well). Firstly, I tested with live USB, and everything was fine, so I decided go for the complete installation. Then everything went as follows:
- I chose to use the whole disk (first option, formatting everything).
I got a message
Executing 'grub-install' /deb/sdb failed. This is a fatal error
After clicking ok I got another window with 3 options:
- the first offers different devices to install the bootloader on (I tried all of them and none works).
Second option: Continue without a bootloader. In that case I got
You will need to manually install a bootloader in order to start Ubuntu
The third option is Cancel the installation.
So, I chose Continue without a bootloader.
Then I restart the computer (with the Live cd) and in a terminal type
sudo fdisk -l but I obtain
fdisk: unable to seek on /dev/sda: Invalid argument
What can I do? any help will be appreciated.
