hda6 25.61 GiB Ext3 /
hda7 1016 MiB Linux swap

GRUB installed on MBR of (hd0)

The installation appears to work fine until GRUB is installed and the 
system is rebooted. When rebooting from hda:

GRUB loading stage 1.5.
GRUB loading, please wait...

The HD led stay lit for several seconds, then turns off. The system is 
frozen. I cannot boot any longer. I have to restore the MBR from the 
backup I've previously made.

Tried to install GRUB on /dev/hda6, but when rebooting:
Disk read error.
