Preface: This is my first Ubuntu install from a live DVD. I have very little experience with GNU/Linux; however I have in the past installed Kwheezy after burning an ISO without any problems.
Regarding install failure of Grub from Ubuntu 13.10 Live DVD this is the error message that I receive:
Unable to Intall Grub in /dev/sda
Executing ' grub-install/dev/dag' failed.
This is a fatal error. S I am trying this installation on a desktop PC with 16g of ram and 3+tb of hds. And is AMD64 powered. Please any assistance will be greatly appreciated. And quiet my Son's criticism that Linux starts out and usually stays "broken", and is not for the most part for non PC power users. In advance, thank you very much for any help.
