[ubuntu] Clean Install - Read Error on Startup

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Folks - First off, thanks for taking the time to help out. It's appreciated, and I'll do my best to give back on that helping just as soon as I get past this hiccup. :) I've installed Ubuntu 12.04.1 Desktop AMD 64 on a new set of hardware - new HDD, motherboard, RAM, etc. Upon restarting after the clean install, I'm seeing the following glaring message: "Read Error". No detailed error codes, nothing giving specifics, just Read Error. Thinking this was something wrong with either a) the install disk or b) the disk drive itself, I made a new install disk and verified the image (Hardware)
