Hi all, I've never had this problem before. I bought a new laptop and I put in the 12.04 Xubuntu USB and click "install without trying xubuntu" and everything seems to go ok. When it comes to booting though, it boots as if there's nothing on the computer. Booted into the live usb and it shows there is a hard drive there and it certainly *looks* as if Xubuntu is installed.
I tried using "boot-repair" tool which I found after startpageing and this is what it returned: http://paste.ubuntu.com/8512832/
