The screen picture that you posted doesn't show an error message, but it also 
doesn't show the entire video output.  Can you resize the video output on the 
monitor to show everything?  (I'm looking for a "#" prompt at the bottom left 
corner of the screen which would mean that linux booted properly and is 
waiting for your command.  

I'm also not clear about if you are ever able to boot normally into linux, or 
if the computer is totally unbootable.
