(1) I tried to upgrade to 12.04 and the upgrade bugged. Since then, I tried to reinstall with usb device. I change the Boot Device Priority (Removable Dev. is first) but even with this change, I receive this awful page:

error:no module specified.
error:no suitable mode found.
error:unknown command 'terminator'.

I am not a Ubuntu or programmer. Could someone explain me step by step what should I do in order to fix this problem and have finally 12.04 installed on my Eee PC 1201HA (Netbook).

Thanks a lot,

I speak French, Spanish and English. So, anyone who speaks one of these languages is welcome ;-)

(2) I have just changed the "Hard Disk Drives". Now, first Drive is USB: and 2nd Drive [SATA:PM-WDC WD 2500]. And now, I do not recevie previous awful page (kernel panic and other strange line codes) but a black screen (NOTHING).

(3) Now, I have changed again the Boot Device Priority to USB: as first one (before it was Removable Dev.). And, still this black screen.
