I tried to load Ubuntu 12.04 onto an old machine from a CD and the installation went fine, but I got the boot error: no such device: grub rescue.
I looked into the issue with a CD live boot (unsure of the terminology, but I selected the option to try Ubuntu Desktop) and found this forum post suggesting a Boot Repair program. I installed it from the terminal. I ran the program, it said it was fixed, and I tried to start it up no no avail. It gave me an Ubuntu Pastebin and to ask if I had any troubles.
What should I try now to fix this?
I am not very educated in programming or Linux type operating systems yet. But I would appreciate any help and will try to give as much information as necessary.
So far the only way my access desktop is using the installation disk.

Reinstall GRUB using the live CD.
Steps are available here: Boot error > no such device: grub rescue
