I dded the hard drive with zeros as a simple way to clear out the sensitive data (yes, I'm aware there are better ways, but it was fast and easy). I am now attempting to install Ubuntu Server 12.04, but I run into an issue when I get to installing GRUB.
I issue grub-install /dev/sda and get a fatal error back.
My question is, are the two things related or "happy" coincidences?
If the two are related, is there a good way to solve the issue?
