These images are what I get after downloading Xubuntu 12.04. The top ones, Ubuntu 10.04 and memtest work correctly. The bottom three, for Xubuntu do not work. They send me to second screen. I did MD5 and SHA256 test. OK. Burned ISO to DVD at 4x. Checked disk on two different computers. OK. thank you for any help.

Did you select the upgrade option when you booted the CD?

No, some time ago I removed Ubuntu 11.04. I formated and changed partitions slightly. Tried to download and install Xubuntu 12.10 many times, no luck. Question # 215435. Just fresh install.

I suggest you boot to the live desktop and fsck the unmounted partition. You may also then want to mount it and check the etc/fstab UUID lines mirror the output of:

sudo blkid

Why does (in postimge - above) the error: no such device: list a device not listed in "sudo blkid"? How to correct where grub goes to?

Solved! Needed to update Grub. Did it a few days ago, did not change anything. Updating a hour ago worked fine.
