problems with installing Ubuntu: GRUB loading
I just got my new Laptop with no OS and I have been trying for a few days to get linux on it.
But after I install it and restart my laptop I get stuck on black screen with "GRUB loading".
I have tried Ubuntu 9.10 and 8.4.
Same problem. Only with 8.4 I get "GRUB loading stage1.5"
I can run ubuntu directly from the CD. Tried to reinstall GRUB, but no luck.
Would anybody have an idea what is wrong?
Here is the description of my laptop: http://www.one.de/shop/product_info.php?cPath=213_215&products_id=3881
