Sorry Ubuntu community if you have answered this before. I am new here. and i wouldn't have posted if my problem to me wasn't severe. I will try my best to give you a perfect representation on what i see through my problem.

I have a P9P67 Motherboard w/ UEFI Bios.

I run Ubuntu through USB Flash Drive GNU GRUB Version 2.00 - 13ubuntu3, I generally have 4 Options.

I am using Try Ubuntu without installation to write this. I had Windows 7 installed before this and I set the installer to Replace Windows, I no longer want anything to do with Win7.

Ubuntu Installation goes smooth and installs Perfectly, then when it comes to the reboot. I pull out my USB Flash when i see the restart and i'm left with a Black Screen with a underscore flashing on the left side of my screen.

now i did research on this. people are saying that Ubuntu installed perfectly but my boot is still on the USB. i could be wrong so i'm asking the professionals, you guys. I will be keeping my eyes on this post in hopes i can finally run Linux today. and ready to answer any questions you may have.

I'm just about giving up, I cant re-install windows and I cant get Ubuntu to load. I'm stuck.

If this helps I will post this as a last resort.

When you restart change your boot order and check if it works –  M.Tarun Sep 19 '13 at 12:34
I restarted changed the boot order to where the hard drive was first. I am still presented with the Flashing Underscore problem. –  SeiferXJ9 Sep 19 '13 at 12:43

so thats it? i get thrown to a list of possible solutions? which none is working right now. most of these "solutions" seem to be graphic card related. mine i'm sure is Bios Related. –  SeiferXJ9 Sep 19 '13 at 13:45
After doing much research I noticed that getting rid of windows can mess up the bootloader. since GRUB2 stays on your USB you have to move grub to your HDD. please correct me if im wrong. –  SeiferXJ9 Sep 20 '13 at 16:07
