Welcome to LQ!

The grub error you are referring to (error 17) means an unrecognized file system. Are you installing for a dual boot with Windows? If so, please post again and explain how you have your disk partitioned. If it is stopping after the first disk during the install, I believe it may be confused with your partitioning.

Post a little more information (what happens when the first disk completes and what happens as soon as you insert the second disk and what the screen shows before it gets to the error.)
