My compact presario CQ57 is what I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 on. It allows to me try Ubuntu but when I try to install it alongside windows 7, it restarts and takes me through the setup all over again and keeps restarting at that point. The laptop already has another os on it, hp quickweb, but would that affect a partitioning?

It never actually installs, it asks if I wanted to run Ubuntu alongside windows or replace it, I chose alongside and then the continue button says restart and continue.

This may sound a bit obvious, but after installing do you eject the installation media? –  Alex Nov 14 '12 at 19:11
