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

I was able to successfully boot Ubuntu from the usb/DVD.

However, when I want to install Ubuntu the install prompt shows, I then select my region/user/keyboard/hard drive to install.

Then while I wait for it to finish installing the prompt crashes and boots me back to the Desktop.

What am I doing wrong?

It's quite likely that you are doing nothing wrong. It looks to me like Either you are experiencing hardware problems or you are attempting to install a development version of Ubuntu which still has a few bugs in it. Which version are you attempting to install? –  Elder Geek Jun 26 '14 at 1:47
