    I'm assuming you get this message after you have installed Ubuntu and tried to boot from the hard drive. I suggest you boot from the live CD/DVD/USB pen drive and post the output of
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    the -l has a small L. Also post the output of
    Code:
    sudo blkid

    Adding to Jonathan's advice, I want to ask how you installed.
    iso burned to CD? DVD? Install from USB?
    Did you check the md5sum?
    Check your download.

    One other note: chances are, you attempted to install the just-recently-announced version of Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2, instead of Ubuntu 12.10 Beta 2. Is that correct?

    There is something wrong with the disk partition information that the system used, and that is why you are getting the error message that you have seen. Providing the information others have requested would help us out. Meanwhile, there are two other things you could try doing:

    1. You could run this software straight from the CD. That would at least allow you to experiment with it.
    2. You could attempt to install it again.

    Do you have any other systems also installed on this computer, or did you erase all of them (intentionally or otherwise) when you installed, or attempted to install this software?

    If there is nothing else installed on this hardware, it may be easier to simply start over, and use the entire disk. But if there is other software, especially Windows, also installed, then you may not want to do this.

    Please provide the information that has been requested, and based on your response(s) we can attempt to guide you to a solution that will work well for you. Hope it works out!
