Solved GRUB installation error installing Ubuntu Server 12.04.2 LTS on Fujitsu TX100 S2
When installing Ubuntu Server 12.04.2 on to a Fujitsu TX100 S2 every time it got to the GRUB which is pretty much the last stage it failed.
The issue I was pretty sure was to do with the controller. The machine comes with a RAID controller on board. I had already disabled this and tried again with the same problem.
The solution was to set in the BIOS the SATA Mode Selection to "Compatible". Re run the install and the GRUB succeeds. I was helped by Fujitsu Primergy support even though this is not a supported platform.
