Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This is the 10th time I try to install ubuntu, I tried to install it alongside windows and I get the error

Executing grub-install /dev/sda failed. This is a fatal error. Sorry, an error occurred and it was not possible to install the bootloader at the specified location.

I get the option to install it on other locations which all fail.

I also tried to install ubuntu through wubi which finishes installing but I when I try to load ubuntu it says that bootloader was not found.

I also tried to install over windows and it also gives the same error leaving me with no operating system.
