[ubuntu] USB install Ubuntu 12.04 on Dell Inspiron 14R

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I had successfully installed Ubuntu on this machine before, but decided to start messing with some GUI interfaces for application docks and, well, sorta screwed everything up. Upon reinstalling I find that my laptop will not boot without the USB drive present. Previously I had a small Win7 partition, but this time around I went full Ubuntu. Anyone else had/having a similar issue? (Hardware)
