I've tried to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS x64 on my laptop. I've created a bootable USB stick with Universal USB installer.
What I have done:
- I've plugged the USB flash drive into a USB slot on my laptop.
- Formatted my C: drive (100 GB) (where my previous OS was installed, Windows 7 x64)
- Booted into BIOS which I set to boot from the USB flash drive.
- When it booted, at the Ubuntu menu I chose
Install Ubuntu on a hard drive. Everything went smooth, without any problems. After the installation finished it promted me to restart the computer, so I unplugged the USB flash drive, restarted, set up my BIOS to boot again from hard drive and rebooted again.
- My PC booted but as soon as I got over the boot animation and entered into the OS, I saw the taskbar, clock and stuff. Then my laptop froze completely so I shut it down. As soon as I rebooted my PC, it remained frozen at the Ubuntu loading screen. I couldn't do anything just reboot again and again, and everytime on reboot it remained frozen on the Ubuntu loading screen.
After realising that there is not much I can do about it (my laptop froze every time, it couldn't get past the Ubuntu loading scren even after 10 min) I tried to format my C: drive again (where Ubuntu 12.04 was installed) and realised it was FULL (from 100GB was 0.00 MB free space). This is weird because it only requires 5 GB or so, I don't know what to do now, I will try tomorrow with another flash disk (the one I tried with was 2GB so I will try with a 16 GB one). The next time I'll install Ubuntu, I will deselect
I hope you guys can help me with this, I really want to install this 12.04 LTS x64, my laptop is only 1 year old and it worked on Win 7 x64.
