    Yeah I just installed Ubuntu 8.04.1 and this the terminal comes up and then it does nothing. What can I do from the terminal to first load the kernel and then boot it to get to my desktop?

    Try this in the grub editor you see
    find /boot/grub/stage1
    You will get output like (hdX,Y)

    Now write

    root (hdX,Y)
    setup (hdX,Y)

    Type quit
    and reboot

    Or visit HOWTO Restore GRUB

    Execute this
    Code:
    root (hd0,0)
    setup (hd0)
    Reboot machine.
    In case it doesn't work, boot up from Ubuntu CD, open Terminal and execute this
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    Post output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    It works now, I decided to not be lazy by using wubi and made a partition to do a full install
