Public bug reported:

Attempting installation of lubuntu 17 on a single HDD which previously had 
Windows XP on it. (I am attempting to erase that installation and install 
lubuntu). The grub boot loader failed to istall with a message to check 
/var/log/syslog. Which I do not know how to check after a failed system install.
I shall attempt to wipe the disk with gparted and try again. Please help. Why 
would grub fail?
