Exclamation Install of 12.04 on MSI Wind U100 gives fatal error

Hey all,

I have just instructed my bootable USB to overwrite Windows XP and use the full disk on my netbook but it returned an error at the final hurdle.

GRUB could not be installed. This is a fatal error.

It gave me option to proceed without a boot loader or install elsewhere.

I tried install elsewhere and the installation finished.

Upon restart, after the BIOS only a blinking white cursor would show...

I am reinstalling but can someone shed some light?

Got it working - I re-installed with the wireless capability enabled which allowed updates during the installation.
