I have downloaded and installed Ubuntu erasing XP in the process. It seemed to install correctly up to the point where I reboot. Machine will not boot. I have just a flashing curser on top left of blank screen. Can you help please? Kind regards Eleanor
Can you provide more detail? For example, do you see the boot message of the bios, like it is an HP or ... If so can you boot into a live session by using the live cd or usb zou used to install ubuntu? If so may be just the grub boot loader is f...ed up, which you can recover using the information provided by the following link.
Just type the commands into the terminal and you should be fine.
