Debian 9.6.0 install fails on grub step

Postby kwiqsilver » 2018-12-27 20:49

I'm trying to install Debian on a computer I just built, but it fails at the grub install step.
I used the guided partition option (I tried encrypted, LVM, and non-LVM), and told it to use all of /dev/sda.
Am I doing something wrong, or is there a bug in grub?
Here's the relevant output from syslog:
