It's showing "/dev/sda" on the drop-down at the bottom under "Device for boot loader installation". Not fa

What happens if you click "New Partition Table..." or "Add..."?

This is weird, can you create a partition? That is what you should do usually when there is none.

Is this a virtual machine target?
Could you post information about your hdd/ssd size/type ? And also the results for:
Code:

cat /proc/partitions
and as root:
Code:

# fdisk -l

@s-mec: The Device for boot loader installation seems to be a pull-down menu. Any other entries available besides /dev/sda?

Also: Could it be that /dev/sda is already fully allocated? I'm not familiar with Bodhi Linux (taken from your profile), but some distro's leave the allocated stuff alone (default option) and you need to tell it to use all. This is most often asked before you allocate (new) partitions.

You should have either a drop down menu at the top similar to GParted allowing you to select hard drives or the main window should show at least /dev/sda if you have no partitions/filesystems or data on a drive. Your drive is not recognized for some reason. What kind of drive and how many do you have? The /dev/sda at the bottom is the default setting for bootloader installation. Did you check the connections for your drive?

You haven't answered any of the questions asked by ukiuki, yancek and me.

If you want to receive any additional help you need to answer those questions.
