I am installing 14.04 LTS 32-Bit on an Athlon 700MX with Nvidia graphics card, 10 Gig HD and 2 Gig RAM. After installing the software all I keep getting is the error above. I have tried GPART, Auto Disk Rebuild, re-mounting. And it never gets free of the error on the front end. System boots to installer/trial with any bootable DVD or USB installer. System set in BIOS to DVD/USB/HDD-1.

What could be the problem. Thanks.

The problem could be in corrupted disk. If you can, put the disk in another computer, and check it with fsck and for S.M.A.R.T errors – Filip Sohajek Jun 18 '14 at 16:46
Also check in your bios if you have the right disk as first boot device selected. – rechengehirn Jun 18 '14 at 16:48
You don't have to put the disk in other computer. You can use a live CD/DVD with Ubuntu and gnome-disks app . – Cornelius Jun 18 '14 at 16:48

I would guess you have something wrong with GRUB or if you used other option with MBR. I would try to run live CD and see if filesystems are properly mounted in /etc/fstabs. Also check for /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
