Crash on Grub install during new install


Hi, I am having a problem installing any form of linux, tried mint cinnamon, MATE, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, all in them in the most recent versions and from cd and usb. the install always crashes/freezes near the end during:
Running "install-grub/dev/sda"...

Device HP Pavillion Model p2-1124

Motherboard
APXD1-DM (Bluewood3)

Processor
AMD Fusion E300 (Zacate) Dual Core

Memory
4 GB Type: DDR3-1333

Integrated graphics: Radeon HD 6310

Hard drive
500 GB SATA


I am not brand new to linux but my last distro was from 2006, so if someone could just get me going in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

Check the BIOS for any "boot virus protection" or such-like.

This would be unusual behavior for any of those systems being installed on a blank drive with no other operating system. Are you trying to install in MBR or EFI or is the computer EFI capable?
