I have installed many versions of Ubuntu and derivatives with no problem on my Compaq Persario CQ60 (Intel Celeron dual core 2.20 GHz, 2 Gib DDR2 any other info needed?). With Ubuntu 12.10 and Xubuntu 12.10 both 32 and 64 bit versions, the installation stops on the screen where you select whether to install third party software and whatnot. After clicking "next" I get the loading cursor and that's it. I've let it sit for several hours but it never advances to the next page. I have tried using USB and DVD install medium. I can provide any other information that is necessary. In the past, I have always used the regular image, not the alternate.
