i managed to get into ubutnu through windows xp so i installed it and installed grub i then tryed to get to ubuntu but it still displayed the same results so therefor it is nothing to do witht he disc (i think).
it says something about busybox first

What do you mean when you say: get into Ubuntu through Windows?
