I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 from DVD on a wiped hard drive. After it finished installing it asked me to remove the media and hit enter. Which I got the message:
error: no such device: 487e0bd2-2436-495a-a5e7-fe240a51ff20. grub rescue>
I reinstalled again and got the same message, except the long string was different.
I've tried boot-repair from the livecd, with no results.
I've seen some recommendations of running
sudo fdisk -l and using that to edit the boot manager, again from the livecd. But I have no idea how to do that or if that's a good next step.
How do I finish installing Ubuntu, so I can boot up and start my first venture into Linux?
