    New to using Ubuntu need help

    I just recently decided to start using Ubuntu opposed to windows for various reasons, but after installing(12.10 32 bit) and trying to boot I am brought to a black screen which says the following:
    BusyBox v1.19.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.19.3-7ubuntu1) built in shell (ash)
    Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

    (initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system

    I am not sure what to once this message pops up onto my screen and before I had already installed this onto my desktop with no problems, but now I am having this problem with my laptop. I apologize in advance if this is a easy problem to fix but I am fairly new to Ubuntu and not quite sure with how to fix this problem.

    how did you do installation ?

    here is how to set the partitions:


    use gparted or partedmagic to create 3 partitions:
    - / : root, bootable, ext4, ~ 12 Gb (take note of its name: /dev/sd? , will be asked when installing in manual mode by choosing "Something Else" into the installer.
    - swap : about 2 Gb (4 Gb if suspend/hibernate will be used)
    - /home : ext3 or ext4 format, unlimited space to store your data and settings

    then when installing the iso, choose the "manual" installation
