Does the live CD work?

So from a booted live Ubuntu cd or thumbdrive lets see the bootscript read out; in my signature just click on it and follow the instructions. Come back to the thread and click on the # in the reply panel this makes code tags paste all the text in between.

Hi!
First of all what version of ubuntu you have downloaded ?
And if the installation goes fine but after restart you can't boot to ubuntu try to reinstall ubuntu again and if your Hard Disk is fresh whit just ubuntu and whit out any other operating system try to run ubuntu from live CD and format the Hard disk and reinstall ubuntu .
I had this problem several of time before and that solution just work fine whit me .
NOTE: if you have any operating system in your Hard Disk don't try the last suggestion .
Good luck!

... it doesn't boot into ubuntu ...
It might help to say EXACTLY what it DOES do. For example, do you get a grub screen? Does it offer ubuntu as an option if you do? Does it boot into something else? Etc. Also, do you have just the one HD?
