Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have a windows 7 Home premium system. When I try to install ubuntu 12.10 from a USB stick, the installation screen gets stuck at Preparing to Install Ubuntu.

I am well aware that it has already been asked before at Ubuntu 12.10 Installation Hangs at 'Preparing to Install Ubuntu' but I really don't know how to clean the partition.

Previously, I had used the windows installer of Ubuntu 12.04 over my existing windows 7 and have uninstalled it completely and want to install 12.10 fresh. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
