Hi Expert, I am totally stuck at a point and not able to figure out how to fix the below error message. I am doing a fresh install on a Server and while running the command ' grub2-install /dev/sda' , I am getting the below error message :-


Code:
livecd ~ # grub2-install /dev/sda
Installing for i386-pc platform.
grub2-install: warning: Attempting to install GRUB to a disk with multiple partition labels.  This is not supported yet..
grub2-install: warning: Embedding is not possible.  GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists.  However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged..
grub2-install: error: will not proceed with blocklists.



I am not sure why is it says -
Code:
 installing for the i386-pc platform


Code:
uname -a
Linux livecd 3.16.5-gentoo #1 SMP Thu Nov 13 06:29:04 UTC 2014 x86_64 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X7560 @ 2.27GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux


Appreciate all your help in advance.
