So I dual booted Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS x64 with my Windows 7 laptop. I have it burned to a dvd, so I booted the CD, selected to try Ubuntu, then installed inside the "trial" environment. I installed the boot partition as sda6 as /boot, then my root partition was sda7 as /, I made another partition for my home on sda8 as /home. I then made a 4gb swap partition. I did NOT allow it to update, but even when I did allow it to update, the same issue occured. I have another NTFS partition as use as my media partition which is why my boot partition does not start as sda5.
Any suggestions, ideas, comments? I'm practically ignorant of Linux, so y'all will have to greatly simplify any suggestions. Thanks in advance!
I should also say how I got to this screen. I went to the windows side and set up the boot screen to "see" the Ubuntu boot partition using easyBCD.
I then tried to boot to the partition which came up to a command prompt like screen with grub. I typed "boot" and this error message is what occurred.
