I just intalled ubuntu from a pen-drive. When the instalation finished, it told me to restard. Then i restarted and all i got was a black screen with an underline flashing in the left top of the screen. How can i fix this?

I'm installing it on a notebook, Dell inspiron, intel i5, 4g RAM and the video-card is Intel HD Graphics.

Yes, i see it, its configured to boot from hard-drive. I tried to reboot with or without it but none worked.


I fixed it by "burning" the image on the pendrive again, using another program this time, and reinstalling it. The only thing i did different on the instalation was unchecking "encrypt my home folder"( which i don't actually know what is) . Anyway, thanks for the help.
