boot issue just 'grub loading' message and nothing else
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.
