Well the DHCP error would be your wireless card searching for a network.

But what do you mean, it then said operating system not found..
Did it blue screen and say that, did it restart and say that on a black Screen?

My guess is that you might have formated over a section of the HD that was proprietary to that specific brand of labtop. I know its a long shot, but maybe there was a partition on the HD that was required for the labtop. Similar to how some Prebuilts have a backup partition preinstalled by the manufacturer.

Other than that, It could be bad Memory... (Using memtest86 to test)
Or your Harddrive is dieing. The Ultimate boot disk has some diagnostic utilities. You can google both memtest and UBD.
It was working fine before your formated and installed linux right?
