    This doesn't look like a partition table
    Probably you selected the wrong device.

    Re: LiVE USB xHDD

    You have a linux partition in sde1, so I assume that is your Ubuntu install. Lets try reinstalling grub first. But do have have a lot of removeable devices that are sda thru sdd?

    I did have trouble getting Ubuntu to boot when I installed from one USB (sde) to another (sdf) and then removed the install USB. I did not have sdd and the install remounted at sde. So the settings were not correct and I think the search by UUID that grub does must stop looking after it finds gaps in drive letters (In my case missing sdd).

    If you have unplugged any devices it may not be sde, so run fdisk and check that it shows linux on sde1.

    Install MBR from LiveCD, Ubuntu install on sde1 and want grub2 in drive sde's MBR:

    sudo mount /dev/sde1 /mnt
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sde
    If that returns any errors run:
    sudo grub-install --recheck --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sde

    And to get grub to remember where to reinstall on updates:
    to get grub to remember where to reinstall on updates:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc
    spacebar to choose drive, enter to accept, do not choose partitions

    Re: LiVE USB xHDD

    this is what I did in Terminal
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/sde1 /mnt
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sde
    Installation finished. No error reported.
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc
    debconf: DbDriver "config": /var/cache/debconf/config.dat is locked by another process: Resource temporarily unavailable
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$
    the drive I did the full install with is the 500GB
    I am running the Live USB off my 8GB
    and there is a 4GB internal drive that had Ubuntu installed but I am currently waiting to see if anyone has a solution to my problem over @ http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1545125 (I originally had this question on the same page but thought it might be better to move it here)
