I did a clean install of Ubuntu 12.10 and everything went fine but after restart it doesn't load. It is the only OS on my HDD.

Why doesn't Ubuntu load after installation?

Could you be a li'l more specific as to where it stops loading, like which screen? The Grub (OS selection menu)? or after the grub? And a li'l more details about your hardware specifications, especially if you have any graphics cards and such. – Nitin Venkatesh Nov 5 '12 at 16:38

The installation works perfectly fine. After the installation it says it needs to restart and then it just doesn't load. It is stuck on the ubuntu purple screen.

You can use the edit button on your question to add the above information instead of adding it as an answer. It'd be great if you could do that and delete this answer. – Nitin Venkatesh Nov 6 '12 at 18:52
