Question Ubuntu 11.04 EFI boot install issues


I am trying to install a clean install of Ubuntu 11.04 desktop AMD 64
not dual boot

the bios on my Motherboard supports EFI
i have set EFI for CD/DVD boot for the Ubuntu live CD

Here is the hardware:

AMD A8-3850
Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H
Gskill DDR3 1866 F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL (CL9-10-9-28)
WD 2TB sata - installing ubuntu on sda
WD 3TB sata - sdb
pioneer dvd

at first i thought the issue was support of the 3tb drive but i now have the same issue with the 2tb drive
a ran the ubuntu live cd install but when it reboots i dont get any menu
shows "loading operating system" this stays on the screen for quite some time and then i get a flashing cursor in the top left of the screen

i think it has something to do with the efi partition / grub2 on the boot drive
based on post the ubuntu 11.04 live cd doesn't create this properly

im really confused will all of the info on efi / grub boot partition

i was wondering if someone could direct me on the specific steps on how to get ubuntu to boot
i am a bit familar with linux but i have never had to struggle with boot issues
