After install Mepis 6.5 I get Grub error and won't boot


I'm trying to install the new Mepis 6.5 but it keeps buggering up the MBR so the PC will not boot. When Grub starts to load I get an error code. I've install Mepis a couple of times now but the same thing happens. Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance

Steve

It might be useful if you would post the error code/message you get.

What is the configuration?---eg what other OSes are installed, dual-boot?,...etc.

What bootloader option are you choosing during the install?
