    Also when I get to the Menu i can change the language and that's it. F# keys won't work so I can'tt access the other options.
    Finally the lvm part is bothering me as I can't change the partition in another system file nor modify its size.

    Looking as the many issues I have I will probably try a new install ( another one..) and try to partition everything by myself.
    Can you confirm what I need?
    A ext4: / (40 go)
    A ext4: /home ;not necessary but I want one (454 go)
    A swap: ( 5 go) (I have 4 of DDR 2 or 3)
    A bios partition with the boot flag ( 1 mo)
    I had problem similar to yours. I think that the live cd has put the MBR file (Master boot record ) on your USB device.That is why you get the grub menu when your usb device is in.
    try reinstalling the OS.
    and while you are manually specifying the details please check that the MBR file is created at the hard drive(sda) not the USB drive(sdb).
    Better still, first change the boot order from the BIOS kepping the hard disk above the USB device before installing. You can boot using usb device by accessing boot options at the time of start up.

    Tell me whether it solved your problem or not.

    Hi. sorry for the delay. Installing another live Ubuntu fixed my issues. However I couldn't choose my partitions and had to use auto install.
    I managed to get to Ubuntu desktop. Also I had to use boot repair cause it wouldn't launch another time. It worked!
    Well that was a short relief. Two days later: RIP graphic chip.
    Damn it.
    Whatever. The issue was only the booting device.
    Thanks everyone.
