error 'grub-install /dev/sda failed'

While trying to install Debian Squeeze on a 20TB partition, I got the following error:
grub-install /dev/sda failed
The fix, in my case, was:
- create a guided partition (it will create a 1MB 1st partition for grub)
- delete the rest of the partitions and create them as I wanted

I hope it will help others as well.
