    Default won't install on my HP Compaq nx7400

    Good day-

    I tried three times now to install to HD from the LiveDVD..... everything appears to be good, then it asks to "keep testing" or "reboot".

    I reboot, remove the disk as directed, hit enter and it comes up with nothing but this on a black screen:

    GNU GRUB version 1.98-1ubuntu12

    <some directions for using GRUB>


    thats it,.....

    Any ideas? help?
