EDIT: Ugh, this is so frustrating. I restart to complete installation and there's no grub and it just boots to Windows. When I boot to the live CD it takes me back to the installation setup where I get the errors again.
Firstly the most common occurrence of this problem is leaving a USB drive, even an iPod, plugged in during install. If this applies to you, unplug it.
Secondly you didn't mention if you managed to get Linux installed while the Windows drive was connected or not. Please do so.
I'm going to assume it was disconnected since newest Ubuntu has Grub2 which is very good at detecting and installing any bootable devices. So the first thing to try would be to recreate the conditions under which you installed since the Grub2 bootloader could not install to a drive that wasn't there. So either disconnect the windows drive or set your boot priority in BIOS to the drive with Linux on it Then we'll know if your installation basically succeeded.
I will wait for further info on the present state of your system re the above issues and then recommend the best solution.
