Hi Everyone,

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my PC, but it doesn't boot. I get an error of something like: "No disk found" or something.
Now here's what i did:
I have a 500GB HDD. It has Windows XP installed in it. Now I cleaned out 100GB from the HDD and created 2GB Linux Swap drive using GParted. The during installation, I selected the option, "use the single largest free space" option in the partition selector. The installtion when through fine. After the reboot, when the multi boot screen comes, i select the Ubuntu option it just doesn't load and i get the error as mentioned.

I went home and and booted the PC, the exact error was:

"error: out of disk

press any key to continue..."

When i pressed on a key, it went back to the OS options screen.
