Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Tried to install Ubuntu as per your instructions https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Nexus7/Installation. It appeared to install and re-booted its self. However all that appeared was some very small text and there it stayed.

Eventually I re-installed the stock android, as per your instructions, which worked fine.

I chose the 32Gb option during the install. Any ideas as to what I can do?

This sounds like a bug, which would be off-topic on Ask Ubuntu and should instead be on launchpad –  Marco Ceppi Nov 16 '12 at 14:00
    
Since this is a bug can you follow the progress here? bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-nexus7/+bug/1079729 We are working on it. –  mfisch Nov 16 '12 at 17:12

Actually, how long did you wait? It should say something like "Unpacking rootfs" and that part can take 10-15 minutes. Perhaps you didn't wait long enough? If instead you dropped to an initramfs prompt, that's the bug above. –  mfisch Nov 16 '12 at 17:17
    
What version (how recently updated) is your installer? Does your Nexus-7 32GB device also have 3G capability, or is it WiFi-only? –  david6 Nov 16 '12 at 19:59
    
Got my nexus 7 32Gb+3G on Wednesday and downloaded all software on Thursday. You are correct it dropped to the initramfs prompt. –  Dan Nov 18 '12 at 17:14
