What exactly are you trying to do?
Doing a new installation of Ubuntu overwriting the whole disk, or trying to re-use the existing partitions, or...?
Why do you have a need for a re-installation, what happened to the previous installation?
Are you using a DVD or a bootable USB stick for installation?
Are you sure that the installer kit is ok, did you perform an md5test to verify that?
At what moment do you get that grub rescue prompt, during installation or after the first reboot?
