I have tried installing 12.10 now 5 times with no luck. Every time it hangs up at the new features screen of the install. I've tried burning slow. Tried a cd and a DVD. On a clean HDD and tried overwriting a vista HDD. Please help as I need this for school. Thank you Mike

Please add to your question the specifications of your PC (processor, ram, video card type) to help you. – To Do Nov 21 '12 at 9:59
This question needs more information. As To Do stated you need to at least list your basic hardware. – coteyr Nov 21 '12 at 10:16
Could be a dupe of the bug where the ubiquity screensaver crashes? – Bryce Dec 4 '12 at 22:25

I think the best option is to use a Pen drive. Download Unetbootin and set up the installer on your pendrive . Boot from pendrive by pressing F8 or whatver key your pc selects the boot mechanism . In my experience booting from Pendrive is much beeter than on DVD. Hope you find this usefull
