    Default [Help]Bootloader install failed[Help]

    I was installing BT5 on my laptop for a dualboot with win7 and when it was at 99% copying files a message appeared saying Bootloader install failed
    It gave an option to:
    -Choose a different device to install the booloader on
    -Continue without a bootloader[but then it tells me i have to install a bootloader manually which i don't know how to do]
    -Cancel Installation
    I tried to redo the installation but it keeps having this error near the end.

    My laptop configuration is:
    Sony Vaio Z VPCZ1290S
    Intel Core i7 620m-2.66Ghz
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M GPU/ Intel HD Graphics
    512GB SSD Raid Configuration 0
    8GB RAM

    if you are running from a removable media there is a program in the "other" category called unetbootin. use it to install the super grub boot loader.


    sources: I had the same problem
