Hardy Heron Installation Frustration
I have been trying to get my brother's computer setup with a fresh install of Hardy Heron all day and cannot seem to figure it out. Long story short, I know the disc is not the problem, because I installed it fine on my parent's computer. The problem is that when I go to install via the install option at the boot screen or via the install icon once the live cd is booted, the installation goes through to 100%, but then loads the live desktop rather than asking me to restart and load ubuntu from the hd. When I restart, it says grub 1.5 is loading and then says ERROR 15. Then I booted into the live cd and went into grub and tried "find /boot/grub/stage1" and it did not find anything. Since I know where it installed it, I tried manually "root (hd1,0)" and then setup hd0 (also tried hd1)... which then said that no stage1 was found. I tried some suggestions from other forum posts that said I should mount the installation and then use grub which also did not work. I then tried to find menu.lst and found that it is not there. I don't know what to do and I cannot figure out why the install boots into the live cd instead of asking for a restart. I have tried multiple installations with multiple options (manual and guided largest continuous space).
