October 24th, 2010, 05:19 AM
Installed ubuntu today after installing a new hard drive off of a live CD with ISO image to the new hard drive. Once it was done, it operated fine. Until I shut it down. when i went to use the laptop again, it gave me the following message:

GNU GRUB version 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu3
Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.

It won't boot ubuntu at all from either the hard drive or the ISO CD again. It keeps on coming up to the above error message. What do I do? Please help! please be patient with me. Thank you for guidance for a complete noob.
