    boot issue just 'grub loading' message and nothing else

    Hi All

    I have a CLEVO laptop and it currently has Windows 7 installed. I now want to create a separate partition to install Ubunutu 9.10 64bit.

    I attempted to install this and the install part worked fine but as soon as I rebooted all I seem to be getting after the BIOS is

    'grub loading'. I get no other error messages and am stumped on what the problem is. I have looked at other threads on here and other forums and it seemed to say the problem could be with BIOS.

    It also meant I couldnt load windows either but I fixed this by loading the windows cd, running repair and then fixing the MBR which another thread mentioned. Once this was done windows loading up ok.

    I have checked nearly every setting and it has made no difference. Can anyone help?

    I tried reinstalling 9.10 but came up with the same problem.

    I am not sure what I did in Windows may have caused it. I have a 320gb drive and I shrunk it using disk management as I know the ubuntu will see this free space and install the OS onto it. Should I have left this and let 9.10 create some space automatically during install?

    If anyone can advise what I am doing wrong it would be most appreciated.

    Thanks

    Does it boot when you select 'Boot from hard drive' from the LiveCD options?
