Hi, I have the following problem:
I had Windows, then I got sick of it breaking down. A friend showed me Ubuntu and after using it off a live usb for a few days, I made the decision to install it to the hdd and to just replace Windows altogether.
So from that Ubuntu 12.10 USB, I clicked Install and went through the whole process with the exception that it seemed to have frozen after sending me back to the home screen, but with the cursor still rolling. So I rebooted and tried again. And again. Still the same. I figured maybe that's its way of saying it's done, so after the third try, I booted without the USB just to see if my harddrive install had worked. After the boot table I get this message:
"Searching for Boot Record from IDE-0..OK" and then it just hangs.
So now the only way I can use Ubuntu is if I load the live usb. If it's not in, I get stuck at the error above.
Any help as to how to repair this, will be much appreciated!
