Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm a new user and just installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a Thinkpad with an Nvidia graphicscard.

I created 5 partitions on my HDD:


The live version runs nicely. I allready ran the boot repair too here's the url:

Ubuntu Pastebin .

When I try to boot the Laptop after running the BIOS it shortly shows e fdisk read error, then trying to run Ubuntu but stops before getting to the login screen - either with showing the purple screen with Ubuntu logo and loading dots - or it becomes black.

I also tried to change the grub during boot from quietsplash to nomodeset, no success.
