    I am a novice to the entire Ubuntu and Linux worlds.

    I am a teacher, and in my classroom I have a bunch of old PC's made by Sony around the year 2000. Because our school has no money for new computers, I need to revive these old machines and get them working fast again (web-browsing, word-processing, etc).

    The computer I'm working on previously had Windows XP home edition on it. I want to completely delete the old OS and start fresh with Lubuntu.

    I'm attempting to put Lubuntu 12.10 on one of the computers. One I'm working on right now is a Pentium 4. The entire install process goes successfully, but when I attempt to boot without the live CD, the boot fails.

    I get this error message before any OS boots:

    "attempt to read or write outside of disk 'hd0' .
    grub rescue>"

    I tried the recommended settings on boot-repair, but the boot still fails and I get the same error message.

    I made boot info URL.

    Can someone tell me some simple step-by-step directions on what I need to do in order to get this working?

    Thank you so much!
