I had some issues with my win 7 so I decided to change it to Ubuntu.
I used a live USB key to get to the installation manager or whatever it is called.
At this point there is no problem. I chose the delete everything and install linux option and went on 'til the end.
The fact is that when i take out my USB key and boot, I receive the message: Reboot and select proper boot device.
This even though I have only one hard disk. Choosing this very one in the Bios won't change a thing.
Also, when I let my USB key on my computer, it somehow manages to get to the ubuntu loading page and turns to console mode with the text "Kernel panic: Not syncing attempted" on it.
It seems my live CD is fine and that it corresponds to my computers settings (X 64).
I tried it numerous time ( no data to lose so...) using the "take all disk option" and the other one by creating a boot partition, a /, a /home (both in ext4) and a swap.
It always end up the same way.
As for now i'm using the live CD to post this, I can't use any windows tools (which by the way are the one that led to ir crashing).
This is what gparted shows of the job done by ubuntu install. I don't get the use of Lvm2 pv file sytem. When i look at the file system support this looks wrong.

Well, since I haven't got a clue about what's goin' ont, i'd be really delighted to receive some help.
I don't know the console's command to get more info so I'll will give a try later.
Thanks anyway and sorry for my english!
