Xubuntu will no longer boot; even after re-installation
I am using an HP 503n with 256MB of RAM, and I did something that was rather incompetent... I tried to upgrade to a 40GB hard disk after using Xubuntu on a system with 19GB for a few months; so I put in my Ultimate Boot CD and used HDClone to copy the OS over. After a couple of days of trying to re-activate the swap, I realized I killed the system and I should just re-install (there was no sensitive data on the system). After re-installing a couple of times trying to get this to work, all that happens when I turn on my computer is a flashing _ sign at the top; no GRUB, no boot. My computer will no longer boot to the Hard Disk, so I tried installing on both the 40GB and the older 19GB drive, and none of them will boot. I can still boot to a live Ubuntu 7.04 CD, but I can't install Xubuntu 8.04 anymore because it won't boot. What should I do? Did I inevitably KILL my box? Also, just so you know, I am not using my original install CD, I had to re-burn one...
Thank-you in advance for your help
P.S. Sorry for the long post
