I installed ubuntu on my Asus EEEPc 900a twice and it doesn't boot. I even disabled all boot sources except the hard drive in BIOS.

I just now entered this site & saw your question. May I ask if you figured it out? If not, and are still having issues, are you trying to boot your liveCD from an SD card? & if you are, are you using your SD slot or a card reader? – user77488 Oct 23 '12 at 8:44

IF you fail to see the Grub:- Insert a Ubuntu 12.10 Live-CD/DVD and run the following commands:

`$sudo mount /dev/sdXY /mnt` # XY is the drive, eg. sda or sda1

`$sudo chroot /mnt`

`$sudo grub-install /dev/sdX` #X is drive number

`$sudo update-grub`

Reboot and take out the LiveDVD. Lemme know if it doesn't work as intended.
