Check you BIOS settings, and modify settings mostly for your hard disk.

Where you want to install the operating system?

thanks for reply but as stated it gets well past that stage.
loads right up but when asked to reboot puter it comes up with error 2

Christi is not detailing something Ubuntu based. The BIOS tells your system what settings to set for ardware and what boot device to use.

Do you dual boot by any chance?

Have you tried reinstalling Grub2 from te liveCD?

Can this also be reassigned as being associated with firefox as it clearly has nothing to do with firefox. It is a Grub issue, not a web browser issue.
