After downloading Ubuntu 12.10 and using the Wubi option to install through windows 7 I hit a road block. I partitioned the
C: drive to install Linux and did the primary install no worries.
But, after I get the prompt to reboot, which I do, I choose Ubuntu and the installation starts just fine. It loads to the point of "copying files" and the progress bar moves along to approximately 2/3 but that's it. It freezes there for around 30mins and then the spinning mouse stops and I'm locked out all together. Nothing works. I have to hold down the off button and force a shutdown.
I'm doing this on a newly purchased Toshiba Satellite P875D with 16Gb RAM, 640Gb HHD and an AMD A8 4500 x64 quad core processor. I split the partition giving Linux 50Gb of space which is more than enough.
Does anyone know why I'm getting this problem? I shouldn't have to burn a CD or create a USB to boot from with Wubi but I will if this is where everything is going wrong.
