Question Grub freeze and trouble installing


Hi
I just bought a Intel D525MW ITX board, a PicoPSU and a stick of 2GB ram.
I burned the new stable debian netinst to a disk and booted it up from a usb cdburner. At this point I had a usb keyboard and a usb kingston pen drive (temporary / ) connected. The computer would freeze whenever I chose a menu item. I rebooted a couple of times, same thing. I disconnected the usb pen and were finally able to start a graphical install. I quickly reconnected the pen and the install went fine as far as I could see.
Now. When I boot from the pen it just freezes showing "GRUB lading. Welcome to GRUB!" and a blinking underscore.

I were able to boot the usb pen on my Alienware laptop just fine - although it wanted a reboot after it ran a fsck.

What do you guys make of this?
Thanks

There you were trying to install debian from a usb disk, weren't you?

From where were you installing this time?

Sorry if I were unclear. I were installing from a cd-rom in a usb-cd-drive the whole time.
Also, I have abandoned the project of installing to a pendrive for now. And I think my kingston pendrive is defective..
