SLES 11 SP1 Built from Suse Studio Live Installer Grub Erro

I’m having some trouble installing SLES using “live installer” from Live CD. during the install process I get an error installing grub:

Error 15: File not found.

I also tried dd to the drive (as I have done many times with opensuse using the raw image I also built) but I could not boot to the drive.

Has anyone encountered this? I wanted to use SLES so that I could purchase support in the future if needed. The supportability report showed that all the packages were supported.
