#911: bootloader install failed on install to hard drive

 Priority:  normal   |   Milestone:                                        
Component:  LiveDVD  |    Keywords:  bootloader;install;grub;install dialog

Comment(by mattjs):

 So the upshot is that someone needs to review this dialog box code and
 options and make sure that it allows "Continue install without a
 bootloader" and "Cancel..." and/or perhaps a "-force" install options or
 just ignore the error and "Continue..." as it should above.  I presume
 that one or other of the boot options on the LiveCD will probably permit
 recovery anyway in which case not preventing continuation even for a
 novice users wouldn't then be a big deal (and they are likely to leave the
 CD in the tray anyway).
