This is my second time installing Ubuntu, and I haven't got much luck yet. (My first ruined Windows' MBR.)
It's been nearly a week since trying to install and reinstall Ubuntu so I can dual-boot it with my existing Windows 7 installation. I followed the steps about installing the OS from linuxbsdos.com, partitioning my lone HDD into 3, inserting the EasyBCD entry of Ubuntu to the MBR and all. Yet I still have my problems:
When I load my Ubuntu entry (which is Grub2), all I get is the Grub4DOS command line. I'm not a computer technician and I have bleak info about command lines so it's hard for me to boot it from there.
When I load my Ubuntu entry (which is Grub Legacy or Wubi or any other entry than Grub2), all I get is a blinking cursor and that's where it ends. I need to restart my machine all over again.
I'm starting my fifth(?) reinstallation of Ubuntu and I hope it's fine. But then, I'm not even sure, judging that all my previous installations failed.
I have an Acer Aspire 4755G laptop, with an Intel i7-2670QM 2nd-gen processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 750GB HDD. I used a 64-bit version of Precise and my Win7 is also 64-bit.
Can someone help me here?
