Ubuntu installed on acer aspire one, shutdown, booted up gpt message to sign in HDD
At this point I am at def con 4. My aspire had the .exe trojan. Replaced hdd 3 times. This time, to rid myself of Windows, I burned 4 copies of dban, having learned that most problems occur due to bad cd. The first round of dban- excellent. I purchased the actual linux OS installation disks (not bright need easiest way) I installed Ubuntu. Fabulous! No problems, happy. I then turn off the aspire. When I booted up I was asked for a hdd password, since I never made one- system failure. I try again, hit esc when message comes up and Ubuntu tries to load- nope. So I whip out dban (autonuke)- I load, type autonuke and a very unusual screen appears. It is scrolling so fast there is no way to really read it, but error and unable were a repeat pattern The screen has been stuck on the same line 4 3 days: here are examples of errors listed:
Out of memory Kill process 77
Out of Memory Kill 682 main. stopped dead
I apologize, I did not even look up any articles or info on this snafu. It has been 4 months since I have been having trouble with the aspire. It is 1 year old. If it has to have HDD replaced again.,I will throw it in the ocean. Windows has compromised my internet. I have changed my access point and password 11 times. On my chrombook I am now locked out of security history on google. I have had this book 4 3 months I will throw it in the ocean as well.
One important piece- there was never a message at boot up no os. Further, I just bought a brand new external cd and it no longer functions. The prior one died during the same process. Possible coincidence.
Any, advice, solution, suggestion, requiring further info or a shotgun would be appreciated 1 million times over.
If not, no worries. I wish health and happiness to you and yours
** sorry I am so crazed**

Please disregard my post, The aspire,the new external cd, the new external hdd all of the new sdc's, flash, pen, blank cd's have just been thrown in the trash. My time is too short to continue this circle of pain. I appreciate all your help in the past. I am keeping the chromebook. For now.
So, situation completely over, back to defcon 1, Going to take my medication, grab my cats and watch death race. Now that's a plan!
