Ok, friend has HP computer. It has nVidia GeForce6150 LE, integrated.
CPU is AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
I started off trying to partition myself, gave root partition 8 GB, then the Swap 2 GB (because it had 1GB ram in it) and the rest out of a 250 GB drive to /home.
That failed, so I tried letting the um, whatever it's called, started with an L, and that didn't work.
ThenI tried repartitioning it myself. and I completely ****** it up. Completely. Any time I try to install it now, gives me "Executing 'grub-install /dev/mapper/ubuntu-root' failed"
Head, meet brick wall.
