I have a small notebook that i was using a previous version of ubuntu on and it worked perfectly until i did a clean install with the latest 12.10. I install ubuntu by usb since the notebook has no cd drive. I am not duelbooting, only ubuntu is on this notebook.
Everything seems to be installing perfectly until i get an error when it tries to install the bootloader. I did a little google searching and saw it was common so i decided to proceed without the bootloader and install in manualy later. However when i tried to install it later from the codes that i found online using the terminal, i get no luck.
I am only a newbe to linux and the terminal even tho i have used ubuntu for a while, it has mostly been used for travel and leasure. ie:internet and films
If anyone can help it be most appreciated as i am not sure what i am doing wrong. What i have tried so far is installing the bootloader by booting into the live usb and using the terminal there, but to be honest i am unsure what i am doing.
