Default installation SOLVED

Thanks to both of you. The problem is solved:* just follow TOM TOM solution "clear the pen drive, put xubuntu on it again(with
unetbootin?) and give it another try".

So, here is my problem: i've just installed xubuntu 12.04 with
a pen drive. Everything went well but when i reboot the
laptop: xubuntu didn't start. I only get a black screen. The
only way to start xubuntu is with the installation pen drive.
The weird thing it's that it's not a live session: the pen
drive its needed to start a normal session. So i've tried to
make a fresh installation but it's impossible to* to boot to
install, i end up in xubuntu normal session.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Cazador.

could be that you or the installer accidentaly installed
grub to the pen drive instead of the laptop's hard disk.



clear the pen drive, put xubuntu on it again(with
unetbootin?) and give it another try. Best of luck!









It would be easier just to boot off a pen drive, and then reinstall
grub (without reinstalling the whole system). To do this you should
then run:



sudo grub-install /dev/sdX --boot-directory path/to/boot

*Where X is your hard disk's letter, probably an 'a' if you only
have one disk.



Path to boot is the location of your boot folder - you can find this
by opening your hard disk in the file manager, going into the /boot
folder, and copying its path (Control-L).



Hope it goes well

Joshua
