I'm a complete Lubuntu/computer novice so bear with me. While trying to install Lubuntu 13.10 onto an almost unused Windows 7 Starter Asus EeePC 1015BX I got the message "Unsafe swap space detected" as per the photo below:

Unsafe swap space detected

I tried the suggestion in the link above, but I fear I've done something wrong because when I now boot up, the screen goes black with a cursor flashing in top left hand corner. And being a novice, I've not a clue what to do from there.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

there seems to be a bug there, as the answer in the linked question says. –  arsaKasra Feb 25 '14 at 12:44
