Can never get 'installation completed"
I am totally new to Linux, but after a recent hard drive failure, decided to give it a go.
All my experience has been windows based, and I am beginning to feel like I will never get this thing installed! aargh!
I get to the part where it says "Detecting File Systems"... and it just hangs.
I have left it for hours and I never seem to get the installation completed message.
What am I doing wrong ?
I downloaded the ISO image and created a bootable disk (atleast I hope I did).
However when it boots, it takes me to a screen that gives methe option to boot between Unetbootin or Windows 2000.
I select Unetbootin and then star the Install Ubuntu option.
I enter the dteails and itjust stays stuck... the orange bar never gets to the end. Most diasppointing!
Can someone give me some clues on what I'm missing ?
