Okay, boot up 11.04 livecd and at terminal, do the following...
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sda
reboot without livecd.
Peter, Tom and Ric is right to worry about your disk. If the above does
not work, suggest you re-install. But before re-installing, ensure your
disk is okay first. Since there is no other OS on your disk, use a
gparted cd and .....
o delete all partitions
o at the device tab, set device to "msdos"
o create your partitions
swap can be about 2 times your ram memory and the balance for sda1. You
can of course create more partitions for any further expansions.
Then only re-install.
Good luck - Goh Lip
