I'm having a simular problem on my laptop but my laptop is a HP Pavillion G6 Version, for some reason something always corrupts the ubuntu installation. Ubuntu 12.04 / 12.10 I've tried them both.
This is with running wubi.exe to install ubuntu (could just be that)
Doing either of the following;
Not sure why but I think it could just be something to do with the later developed HP Laptops in general.
- Boots in to a Black Screen
- Windows chckdsk finds errors and fixes them, then ubuntu boots into grub
- Really Slow
- Freezes and have to restart
- Running Really hot (with jupiter and power saving mode)

I installed the GPU drivers and neptune and put it on power saver and it was still hot. I'm going to try a USB installation tonight and i'll let you know how I get on, thanks anyway mastablasta.
are you burning the image to disk, or burning an image of a disk as a file onto the disk?
its the most common mistake I've encountered for people trying to install a new OS for the first time, thought I should point it out
to be sure check the disk in windows, it should contain lots of files, if it contains just a ubuntu.iso or something then thats your problem...
I recommend IMGBURN as a burner rather than the windows default one... Its free and much more intuitive
Also, Windows x86 was installed by default instead of x64, so I assumed that 64-bit would give me more problems that advantages.
Apologies if I'm wrong,
