I recently decided to migrate to Ubuntu after issues with working in Windows and Remote Desktop access.
I made a bootable USB flash drive with Ubuntu 13.04-amd64 today and proceeded to install on an empty 250 GB HDD. The install went was worry free, however after rebooting all I get is a black screen with a white cursor flashing.
I looked around the internet and thought maybe GRUB did not install correctly. For reference, my system specifications are below:
Intel i3 2100, Asus P8Z68-V LE, ATi Radeon HD 6850, WD Black 640 + Intel 40 GB SSD (Windows 7), Seagate 1.5 TB (NTFS data), WD 250 GB (Ubuntu)
I tried sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sdd1 and I get the error "Path /mnt/boot/grub is not readable by GRUB on boot. Installation is impossible. Aborting".
Does anyone have any thoughts?
