So, I got a new computer (64 bit quad core yada yada).
pulled my Ubuntu SSD drive from old machine, installed it into new machine.
(my intention here is to have Ubuntu installed on the 120G SSD, Win7 on the main drive)
downloaded 64 bit Ubuntu, burned it to a disk.
rebooted with Live CD, installed Ubuntu to the SSD drive, had no problems
rebooted again, got the grub menu, selected Ubuntu
after a minute i got this -> "unable to find medium with live filesystem"
booting into windows, explorer doesnt even see the SSD. Device manager sees it though. I assume this is because its formatted with ext4.
so, The liveCD saw the SSD just fine, installed fine, but when i try to boot ubuntu, i get the error above, heeellllpppp!
UPDATE: small update. Windows did a software update that apparently wiped out my grub, so I guess grub was installed on the main drive. I reinstalled Ubuntu (again) on the SSD drive but, still no joy with booting from it. same error message as above.
