Hello!

I usually run Ubuntu without any problems.

But now I really need to instal quantal into a laptop computer. This laptop computer CD/DVD-ROM drive doesn't work, so I created a booteable usb stick.

Previously the latptop had Precise installed (from usb stick as well) but one day it stopped loading the os, all I got was a prompt but nothing comming up.

So now I'm trying to install again with a new version from usb, I've seen tons of solutions, but all require that I boot from liveCD/USB and modify grub, but the thing is... I can't even get to the terminal to do anything. Simply insert my ubs, it loads asking me for, installing in hard drive or run in usb... no matter what I choose I got this error after some output.

So I'm guessing my partitions are not ok... can someone help me with this?
