grub-install failed during debian testing installation
This is my first post to this list :)
I'm installing debian testing distro on my notebook and PC . The
notebook works properly with debian. But on the PC, installation failed
to run grub-install on MBR. The progress bar stopped at about 50%.
I waited for more than 20 mins and it had no any progress. Then I used
"ps" from shell and found that the grub-install process' status is "D".
I'm going to reset the pc and boot the installed debian system from
grub for dos. And then try to do grub-install in the running system.
Hope it will work.
So is it a known problem? Could anyone give me some advice? Thanks a
