When trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS from a disk, I elected to boot from the disk I mounted the ISO onto. After a simple load screen with a small graphic at the bottom center, it went to a quickly flashing underbar on a black screen and has been here for some time.

Any thoughts as to what is going on?
