(initramfs) error on Eeebuntu

I've searched and searched and searched on the Internet for a solution to this fix this. After installing Eeebuntu on my Asus EeePC, I rebooted just like it tells me. After I rebooted, the EeePC's loading screen comes up, then the Eeebuntu loading screen, but only for a second after I'm dropped to the (initramfs) screen with a blinking cursor.

BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-4) Built-in shell (ash)
> Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.


I don't understand, because now when I try to boot up Eeebuntu, it will give me the same initramfs error. I tried booting another CD to see if the media was the issue. I tried to boot Tiny Core Linux and that successfully booted. If it was the Eeebuntu DVD, then why did it work the first time, and not the second time?

I'm currently whiping the computer to start fresh to see if that can really make me "start fresh."
