When I loaded up the ubuntu installer for windows, I thought everything would work.

A friend did it next to me today and worked fine. I copied what he did for the install but when I start up ubuntu from the OS select, it gives some weird thing saying to press tab for commands. I typed boot from the given command list and it said you must load kernel. So after trying and trying to find the kernel I started back up windows and tried to uninstall Ubuntu using the uninstaller. After trying the uninstaller it said that files were corrupt.

I tried everything, I just want to use ubuntu.
