I get the following error when installing ubuntu 12.04:

*Stooping CPU interrupts balancing deamon ..............................   [OK]

This is printed on black screen.

I get this when I want to move from step 8 to step 9 of this guide.

Any suggestions?

There's a weird problem (likely a bug) in Ubiquity which crashes it on certain computers if they are connected to any network during installation, try to run installer again without having connected to any network, and see if it works then. – Kushal May 5 '12 at 12:43

could you please include more information on your computer, previous operating system, and your selections (minus username and password). You can also install Ubuntu through update manger.
